Join our annual event

As a part of this work, WEC hosts an annual Carbon Friendly Forestry Conference, bringing together diverse thinkers – policy makers, academics, conservationists, tribal representatives and staff, forest owners, and business leaders – to learn about and discuss innovative strategies and opportunities for sustainable forest management that can create a stronger economy and healthier communities in a changing climate.

The 2021 Carbon Friendly Forestry Conference will return as a virtual, two-day event this year.

We are still figuring out many details, including formats and times of the conference sessions. The sessions will be spaced out over two days to reduce time demands and video-call fatigue for participants. We recommend marking these dates on your calendar as we work out further scheduling details.

Registration will likely open in September, and we will make more details available as planning progresses.
