Community Woodlands Association/Making Local Woods Work Conference

Friday 20 October 2017 - 12:30 to Saturday 21 October 2017 - 15:00

 Westerwood Hotel, Cumbernauld

Community Woodlands Association and Making Local Woods Work

This year will see a change to the usual format: the conference will be starting on Friday and there will be groups from the rest of the UK who are involved in the Making Local Woods Work project.

This year’s conference will be much bigger than usual as organisers expect to welcome up to 150 delegates, including 50 or more from outside Scotland. There will be the usual mix of speakers, workshops, site visits, networking and ceilidh. Workshops will cover a range of topics including: woodfuel, adding value to timber, social finance, education, health and volunteering.

Conference bookings are now open via the Eventbrite booking webpage. They have a limited number of rooms available at the Westerwood, where they would like to fit in as many delegates as possible. If you are able to share a room this will help organisers and greatly reduce the delegate fee!

The draft conference schedule is on the Community Woodlands Association website and will be updated as speakers and workshop hosts are confirmed. We anticipate being able to support delegates’ travel costs. Please contact Caroline at if you have any questions or require display space.

Varies depending on what kind of group etc
