Forests and mankind: the relationship must be made sustainable

Research output: Book/ReportAnthology (editor)


Aside from the oceans, the world’s forests constitute the most vital element in maintaining a climate which sustains life on Earth. The forests supply all living creatures with the basic elements essential for our survival. In this volume, experts, scientists and scholars from a wide range of disciplines set out to discuss a broad range of aspects concerning humans’ relationship to forests. What do forests mean to us? Are we destroying them? And what can we do to achieve a healthy relationship between forests and mankind? In order for this relationship to become sustainable—and we claim it must be made so—all stakeholders in politics, industry and science must work together. With this anthology, we make a call for cooperation in sustainable policies towards a sustainable society.
