What future for the Sonian Forest?

5The climate is changing, society is evolving at a phenomenal rate and the public has different expectations of scenic areas: Nor does the SonianForest escape those evolutions. How should the SonianForest best address these challenges? That question was central on 29 November 2011 during the conference “What future for the SonianForest?” of the Royal Flemish Academy of Belgium (Koninklijke Vlaamse Academie van België/l’Académie Royale de Belgique). Scientists and managers gave an overview of recent research on the topic, with practical examples from at home and abroad. On this basis, they formulated recommendations for sustainable management of the SonianForest.

The book Quel futur pour la Forêt de Soignes/Welke toekomst voor het Zoniënwoud (What future for the Sonian Forest) costs €25 and can be ordered via the website of Les Amis de la Forêt de Soignes (Friends of the Sonian Forest) or from Robert Baudemprez, Brouwerijstraat 46, 1910 Kampenhout, 0477/22.39.75 (€8 P&P).
