Future Forest Community
To support innovative ideas for the forest of the future, we concentrate know-how and innovative strength in a strong community.

Future Forest Accelerator
As Europe's first accelerator for forest and climate, we support startup innovations until they are ready for the market. The application phase for the Accelerator 2023 starts on February 27!
Future Forest Forum
The most important event for innovations in the context of wood and forest. The 3rd Forum will take place on September 8-9, 2023 - with hundreds of guests and an exclusive programme!

Our Hub needs your ideas  

Together for the forest of tomorrow: This is the motto under which we launched the Future Forest Initiative.

A strong and interdisciplinary network is required for the diverse challenges that the forest has to overcome as a result of climatic changes. To do this, we connect a wide variety of stakeholders from science, business, entrepreneurship, politics and forest ownership.

Our solutions for the forest of tomorrow

The Future Forest Initiative puts the forest at the center of the actions of innovators and financiers. Through innovation, we open up new options for action for forestry in times of climate change. Together we develop solutions for the sustainable use of the forest and pave the way for a newly conceived forest management in which the sale of wood can be complemented by new sources of income. We address three main drivers of forest change: unsustainable land use, biodiversity loss, and climate change. From these we derive our three fields of solutions:

Smart Forestry
Key technologies open up options for action for climate-smart forestry. By developing new tools for forest managers, we increase the sustainability, flexibility, and efficiency of forest management.
Ecosystem Services
Forests provide diverse ecosystem services for society and the economy. By developing tools to reward these services, we create added value for forest managers.
Climate Solutions
To achieve our climate goals, we support technical and natural solutions from the forest and agroforestry context, which aim at carbon compensation, climate neutrality or circular bioeconomy.
