Spiritual forests and forest kindergartens

Pan Bern AG


This innovation action explores how managing forests to be used as spiritual forests and forest kindergartens could benefit both the forest and the forest owner. The core impact of the case study is to raise awareness of the importance of cultural ecosystem services and to motivate forest actors to manage forests appropriately.

SINCERE supports this innovation action to demonstrate how new markets for nature-based forest solutions are developed and provides evidence for policy makers to support long-term sustainable management of forests. Ultimately, it aims to increase societal understanding and love of forests.
