Forests as Commons, a Manifesto for Future Opportunity

EtF book coverIn my article, Forests as Commons, a Manifesto for Future Opportunity, I argue that we need to rethink the concept of the tragedy of the commons if we are to unlock the opportunities that inhere in forests, for ourselves and the environment. 

The article is published in Evolving the Forest, art.Earth Books 2020, a mixture of opinion, thought and inspiration about woods, trees and forests. Evolving the Forest is a book about the past, the present and the future of our complex relationships with woods and trees, looking back to the Charter of the Forest in 1217 and the birth of modern UK forestry with the creation of the Forestry Commission in 1919 to a bold vision for forestry in 2120.

The book is available from art.earth Books.
