At the XIV World Forestry Congress in September, 2015, WWF asked people what they’re doing to save forests. Hundreds of people participated in our mini-campaign and shared what they are doing and what approaches are needed to safeguard forests. Now, we are asking people to take it a step further and tell us WHY these solutions are important and HOW they should be scaled up.
This web site aims to provide a platform to exchange knowledge and innovate ideas for a sustainable forest future. WWF will use this platform to create new alliances and synergies and to leverage opportunities to collaborate with existing as well as new partners.
A Forum feature will be added to the web site in the coming months to expand collaboration and create dialogue between a community of conservationists, foresters, academics, policymakers, companies, entrepreneurs and other professionals. The Forum will provide a space to exchange ideas and share knowledge on ways to tackle the most pressing challenges facing forests, including how to benefit from new technologies and innovations.

WWF takes a solutions-oriented, integrated and local to global approach that seeks synergies with relevant stakeholders to influence drivers of deforestation and degradation. Our vision is to create a world enriched by resilient forest ecosystems - valued for their contribution to human welfare and sustaining life on Earth.
WWF combines cutting edge science, new perspectives from partners and allies and our decades of on-the-ground experience to help tackle some of the biggest challenges and stickiest issues in conservation. We’ve fought for the creation of national parks and other protected areas, helped bring more attention to responsible harvesting and trade of timber products and have helped increase transparency and continual improvement in forest markets; and we’re working to tackle new threats, like the destruction of forests for bioenergy.
