The relation between societies and forests has evolved, from those diverse forests portrayed in famous dutch landscape paintings, to the small patches of nonnative forest we see today. More and more, we are starting to recognize its importance for climate and for our wellbeing and, starting to revive our connection to them in cities like Leeuwarden, through its parks and monumental trees. During this talk, we will rediscover the past, learn about the present and imagine the future of our connections with forests in The Netherlands.
