An equal and diverse forestry industry in the Nordic region


The green shift will require innovation and innovation in forestry. A diversity of knowledge and experience is needed. So far, this has been a male dominated industry. We wanted to engage more women and young people into a future in forestry.

Kvinner i Skogbruket in Norway, Spillkråkan in Sweden and Skógræktin in Iceland are all organisations working within forestry. The project carried out a pre-project in 2017, together with the Foundation KUN, which works for gender equality and diversity.

The Project gathered representatives from the four organizations to a three-day seminar to discuss how we can achieve closer co-operation between the Nordic countries. The seminar resulted in a plan for a long-term co-operation.
