It’s good to talk

Participants got deep into debate today at the woodland edge workshop sessions held this afternoon. Workshop topics included ‘community involvement in woodland management’, and ‘making better use of the resources from woods’. The discussion in small groups allowed many detailed points to be considered, and then reviewed by a larger set of the participants. The workshops ended with key messages agreed by participants. These were then scribed onto large display boards. Two of the sets of comments from amongst the six workshops are shown below. Most of the workshop groups agreed upon the relevant questions for their strand of the topic and then set about answering them. Just click on the images to see the text more clearly. Further results of discussion from the event will appear on the blog soon, including the individual points of view written onto leaves, used instead of the more conventional technique of post-it notes. – Rick
