If wood didn’t exist, we’d invent it.
Bio-regionalism, job creation, sequestering carbon, multi-disciplinary, endlessly renewable. This is the language of sustainable wood, an old idea revisited. Never before in history has a material re-evolved that can positively influence the needs of our planet. Unfortunately, illegal deforestation remains a major threat to climate change today. Ironically, the solution lies within the problem; sustainable forestry management is the antidote. With whole value chain thinking, we understand that by selective harvesting of young forest growth, storing this timber in the structure of buildings and carefully replanting the forest, we can effectively and significantly remove carbon from the atmosphere.
The Go2WOOD Compendium is a collection of insights from international practitioners from the whole value chain of the wood industry. In the chapters GROW, MAKE, USE and LEARN; carpenters, industrial designers, foresters, and architects alike, eloquently describe the value of working with this timeless material.
Join the Go2WOOD movement, to promote the use of sustainable wood in Denmark and the Nordic bio-region. It’s the right time, the right moment.
