The overarching goal of the Leadership Summit for Climate, Wood & Forests is to harness the power of the green building movement to realize wood’s potential as a climate solution. We will accomplish this by bringing together a select group of thought and practice leaders in green building, embodied carbon, mass timber, forestry, forest science and advocacy in a participative virtual meeting centered on:
- Developing and uniting behind a holistic guiding vision for future wood use that balances the need for forest stewardship, restoration and conservation across North America.
- Identifying the major practical, technical, economic, and political challenges that hinder progress toward this vision.
- Jointly developing a prioritized set of solutions – strategies, tools, informational resources, individual and collaborative actions, etc. – that address the challenges at speed and at scale.
