    Other activities

    The CEPF activities aim at fostering reliable political framework conditions and strengthening national forest owners’ organizations capacities in order to maintain and enhance an economically viable, socially beneficial, culturally valuable and ecologically responsible sustainable forest management.

    The individual forest owners are part of social networks from semi-rural to remote rural areas to which Community policies may be not easily communicated. CEPF acts on emerging issues, making expert and constructive contributions on behalf of the forest owners. In this sense, CEPF has a bridge building role, enabling family forest owners from the local level to voice their concerns and transfer their knowledge to be available at the European level.

    CEPF represents the interests of these forest owners through active participation in, monitoring of and working with the institutions of the European Union and other international initiatives.

    CEPF has an active role in the EU Civil Dialogue Group on Forestry and Cork. This Civil Dialogue Group includes representatives of European forest owner organisations (public and private), forest-based industries, environmental NGOs, forest trade unions, traders and consumer groups. It has 49 members, of which CEPF holds 7 seats.

    CEPF has an observer status in leading processes and organizations which shape forestry and forest policy in Europe and worldwide.
