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.
In Wallonia, all the forests with a high degree of naturalness have disappeared, but we still have certain massifs with great potential for their redeployment. An essential first step would be to classify a large area as an integral reserve: a large integral forest reserve in the Walloon Region of 5000 hectares!
Some forgotten treasures of Entre-Sambre-et-Meuse: Our beautiful natural forests
At the dawn of the return of the wolf to Wallonia, Forêt & Naturalité has formulated an opinion on the important issues at stake in order to successfully cohabitate with the various players in the area. The sustainable establishment of a wolf population certainly marks a new vision of the Walloon forest, wilder and freer.
