Advocacy for forests and wilderness
Forêt & Naturalité, a non profit organisation, is committed to promoting and developing the concepts of naturalness and rewilding in forest management among professionals, institutions and the general public, as well as participating in the protection and active defence of areas with a high degree of naturalness in Belgium and throughout the world.
Conferences and film debates
We offer a series of lectures or film debates on issues related to forests, ecology and the wilderness.
Thematic visits are regularly organised, in Belgium or abroad, by the association or by our partners.
We organise targeted training courses on the functioning of the forest, rewilding practices, the evaluation of naturalness criteria and the identification and understanding of ecological processes in natural forests.
We offer a range of opinion articles, written reports and video reportages on topics related to ecological forest management.

Where the majority of foresters and the media see a danger to ecosystems, Forêt & Naturalité sees in the bark beetle crisis a unique opportunity for the regeneration of a more natural and wilder forest. Through the bark beetle crisis and the chain of reactions to it, Forêt & Naturalité analyses the ideological foundations and lobbies at work in Walloon and international forestry policy.
