Secure our Future by ensuring the next generation have the opportunity to link up with some of the other projects e.g. learning about traditions such as Freemining, playing in a brass band, or using Forest dialect. We need to encourage the next generation to explore what makes our Forest so special, giving them a better understanding and respect for the unique landscape and heritage that we have.
Six projects focused on building skills in our communities to look after our Forest heritage into the future, training people in a range of skills from freemining to coppicing for example. These projects will include those specifically aimed at inspiring and enthusing the younger generations so that our Forest can be safeguarded in the future.
