Kan Sverige, med vår höga andel kvinnligt ägandeskap och företagande i skogssektorn bidra med erfarenhet till en hållbar utveckling globalt? Focali, SIANI och SEI kommer vara på plats under årets politikervecka i Almedalen. Onsdagen den 5e juli organiserar vi ett evenemang på Sidas scen 'Sverige i Världen', där vi vill lyfta kvinnors nyckelroll i utvecklingen av hållbart brukande av skogslandskapet. Vi hoppas att vi ses där!
