We would like to invite you to a debate within the Café Evropa series, this time on the topic "The future of forests in Vysočina - have we learned from the bark beetle calamity?".
The debate will take place in person, in the Painted Hall, Museum of Vysočina Jihlava and will also be available to watch online on Facebook.
Is the situation really so scary and what does the future hold for the forests of the Vysočina region? What is the current state of forest cover in different parts of the Vysočina region? What circumstances and causes have led to the current state - and which ones are man's fault? What are the consequences of the disaster for nature, wildlife and humans? Can any positives be found in the whole situation? Will our relationship with forests and landscapes change in the future?
The debate is organised by the European Commission in the Czech Republic, EUROPE DIRECT Jihlava and EUROPEUM Institute for European Policy.
The partner of the debate is the Faculty of Forestry and Wood Technology (mendelu.cz), which is involved in the project Cross-Border Risk Management in Forestry | AT-CZ.
The media partner of the debate is Deník.cz
