Forest sector representatives discuss innovation and sustainability at transForm OUT EVENT in Coimbra, Agroportal

Yesterday, the Convento de São Francisco in Coimbra hosted the transForm OUT EVENT, a moment of sharing and discussion about the Forest Mobilising Agenda, funded by the Recovery and Resilience Plan (PRR).

Led by Altri Florestal and with the technical-scientific coordination of CoLAB ForestWISE, the transForm Agenda is the largest forestry consortium ever created in Portugal, and the event accompanied this magnitude.

The Church Hall of the Convento de São Francisco, one of the region’s most emblematic spaces, welcomed around 200 guests, including the Secretary of State for the Economy, João Rui Ferreira, and the Secretary of State for Forests, Rui Ladeira.

The opening session was followed by a welcome from the Mayor of Coimbra, José Manuel Silva, followed by a speech from the Secretary of State for the Economy, João Rui Ferreira, who emphasised the importance of the transForm Agenda for the national economy: “In Portugal, the forestry sectors are of great importance because they operate at various angles of the national territory and are a major factor in social cohesion. In this sense, the transForm Agenda gives great peace of mind to the entire forestry sector and transmits good practices to other Mobilising Agendas.”
