  • Behind every forest there is families and faces. IFFA will expose some of the faces in family forestry, community forestry and among indigenous peoples in order for others to better understand the vital combination of forest and peoples in and of the forest.

    IFFA have member organisations all over the world. Family forestry I well developed I some part, and under development I other areas. However, the main objectives, values and vision are common in all region, despite the differences in condition, history and political framework. When you are out in the forest, the dialogue between family forestry representatives are easy due to their common interest in forestry, nature and livelihood. By showing the faces in the forest, we try to communicate this to all people interested in leaning more about the real life forestry

     

     

     

    Every Forest has a face behind!
    Every Forest has a caretaker behind!
    Every Forest has a family behind!
    Every success story about persons and families is accompanied by hardships and failures. But their personal diligence and confident in what they are doing and their power of persuasion made them what they are!

    We start out with family forest faces of Germany and Finland.
