RTPI North East brings this webinar to you as part of the RTPI Online event series

Join the RTPI President Wei Yang as she undertakes a virtual visit to the North East exploring one of her key themes for 2021 – new woodlands and forests.

The Great Northumberland Forest initiative provides an excellent example of this.

This webinar also fit perfectly with the RTPI campaign recently launched calling for more trees to be planted in streets and areas where there is no access to nature #ReTreeFit.

The webinar will explore and discuss the key socio-economic and environmental drivers supporting the delivery of new woodlands, both in Northumberland and in the wider North East region.
