In July 2018 a group working in the environmental sector in Scotland went on an ARCH Nature Exchange trip to Slovenia, funded by Erasmus+ and hosted by Bojan Žnidaršič from Vitra (Centre for Sustainable Development). The participants included: Darren Hemsley, David Nasseri, Elizabeth Pryor, Susan Nicol, Isobel Filor, Isabel Morgan, Cara Donald and Jenna Lane. We spent a week in Slovenia, travelling far and wide, learning about various topics such as: sustainable development, biodiversity, habitat & ecosystem management, adaptive approaches to species management, tourism development & management, environmental interpretation, cultural landscape management & sustainability. The following story map illustrates our educational and unforgettable experience.

Introduction and Finnish Forestry Overview Over two-thirds of Finland is forest cover. This expanse of forest cover may be one of the reasons most of the population seems to be well connected to nature, because most people live within reach of nature. Not only do people live near nature, but many are able to own a small piece of it as much of the forested area is owned by private persons. Accessibility is also important because many people are able to use the forest, even if they do not own any forests themselves. Subject to certain rules and regulations, people are able to use the forest and the wildlife within it as a renewable resource for wood products, hunting and foraging. Above all, most Finnish people strongly value the link between being in nature and good health.
