Lorna Johnson, MSc Conservation and Forest Protection student, will be attending a competition launch event at the Houses of Parliament, Westminster on 11th June. Lorna will be reading part of her winning essay from last year at the 2019 competition launch.
Confor's #TheFutureIsForestry Prize is open to anyone under 30 years of age and students of any age. The subject this year is 'How can farmers and landowners be motivated to plant more trees to deliver a wide range of benefits, especially mitigating climate change?' Entrants must either write an essay or produce a short film with a £500 prize up for grabs and runners up will be awarded £250 and £100 in both categories.
The competition promises to be bigger and better this year, sponsored by Tilhill Forestry, BSW Timber and Forestry Commission.
