The chance to be involved in a project like BIFoR does not come around often. Indeed, the current speed and extent of deforestation – together with the catastrophic implications of unchecked climate change in general – means that we cannot be sure that we will get another opportunity if we do not act now. We have taken decisive steps to confront this problem and are looking for like-minded organisations who share our vision.
The Institute represents an amazing opportunity for an organisation that is committed to environmental responsibility and wishes to demonstrate this publicly. It would also allow a firm to cement their position as a respected, influential organisation at the cutting edge of scientific progress, and to raise awareness of their brand through their contribution to an invaluable, high profile initiative.
If you would be interested in working with the University of Birmingham then we are always looking for new partnership working possibilities. The University of Birmingham Business Engagement Partner who supports BIFoR is Holly Searson. Please do get in touch with Holly at H.L.Searson@bham.ac.uk
We are pleased that the BIFoR Advisory Group includes members of both public, private and third sector ogranisations aswell as Higher Education Institutes. We have representatives from the JABBS Foundation, Forestry Commission, the Woodlands Trust, Scottish National Heritage, CONFOR and Defra.
