Timber Industry plans wood festival for COP26

26 October 2021

The World of Wood Festival for COP26 With the eyes of the world on COP26 in the first two weeks of November, the global timber industry is collectively hosting the ‘World of Wood Festival’ in London.

This six-week celebration of global timber and global forests takes place from 25 October to 3 December at the Building Centre in Store Street, London, online, and virtually.

The COP26 climate talks will bring together heads of state, climate experts and campaigners to agree on coordinated action to tackle climate change. Building on crucial climate change policy, the World of Wood Festival will showcase the vital role that forest supply chains have on our climate in local and global environments, and feature innovations and the design and increased carbon storage potential of responsibly sourced timber from around the world.

Devised and coordinated by the UK Timber Trade Federation and CEI-Bois, representing European woodworking industries; the team has created an alliance of over 40 separate associations, organisations, businesses, and campaigns representing global forest growth and development, engineered mass timber and wood-based products from Indonesia to Ghana, Australia, North America and China.
