Securing Our Future

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.

Protecting our future

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.

Get involved:

  • Consider Freemining as a career
  • Lead conservation, heritage and art activities for young people and families
  • Help local schools learn about our Forest heritage
“These projects will provide training in a range of heritage skills so that our Forest traditions such as Freemining and Commoning will continue. We aim to enthuse our younger generation so that they carry our passion for our Forest, the Foresters’ Forest, into the future to safeguard a unique, irreplaceable land.”
