Event description

Description

Following on from our report for Forest Research, Shared Assets is pleased to host this free workshop for local authority officers on community and social enterprise involvement in English council-owned woodlands.

We will be in the lovely, community managed, locally authority owned ancient woodland at Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park, five minutes from Mile End tube station in London. We are very pleased to be welcoming representatives from Calderdale Council and Blackbark, who will be talking about their experiences of collaborating for better woodland management.

The Cemetery Park is an active community woodland, and we will be meeting in the classroom. We'll have a guided walk around the wood after lunch with Ken, the site manager - so do come dressed to be outside, and in a woodland!

The workshop will be practical, informal and engaing, and aim to:
  • develop practical recommendations and tips for making community management viable in your authority
  • provide a forum for officers to share experiences and ideas with each other, and consider what further support they might need

This event is for you if you are a local authority officer who:

  • is dealing with community management of woodlands and wants to share experiences and ideas and meet other officers in the same position
  • wants to encourage or support more community management of woodlands but has concerns
  • wants to understand more about the success factors and barriers to successful community management
  • is interested in the potential for productive management of woodland and the role social enterprises might play

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

An agenda and joining instructions will be sent nearer the time. Please contact Kate on hello@sharedassets.org.uk or ring 020 7749 1105 if you have any questions.
