SCIENTIFIC COUNCIL

We are constantly learning how we can better create space for nature. We meet scientists, foresters, ecologists, gardeners and naturalists. We are looking for inspiration on how to support natural biodiversity for our climate zone. And our climate would allow forests to grow everywhere!

Our Scientific Council is composed of people who have had the greatest impact on how we work.

PRINCIPLES OF COOPERATION BETWEEN THE FOUNDATION AND THE SCIENTIFIC COUNCIL:

  1. The members of the Scientific Council do not bear any responsibility for the activities of the Forever Forest Foundation.
  2. Members of the Scientific Council had a particularly significant influence on the way in which the Forever Forest Foundation initiates forest-forming processes. 
  3. The members of the Scientific Council support the Forever Forest Foundation with their knowledge and experience in the areas where the Foundation asks them to do so. 
  4. The council’s function is to advice, not to make decisions.

WE ARE INSPIRED BY:

Prof. Jan Marek Matuszkiewicz – his “The natural potential vegetation of Poland” study shows how much we have changed the landscape over the millennia. It is worth taking a look at: https://www.igipz.pan.pl/Roslinnosc-potencjalna-zgik.html

Adam WajrakEach of us owns a book written by him. Adam thinks forests should plant themselves. We know that nature can do without us, but we believe it can do it faster if we help. Here is more about our polemics: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=563646181222994
