What Do Trees Have To Do With Music?

The overall programme of Just Forests has been conceived and designed to highlight the established -but still not yet fully recognised and understood- role and significance of timber/forests in the overall debate on sustainable human development. After gas and oil wood/timber is one the largest traded natural resources in the world today. Millennium Development Goal 7 (MDG -7) has clearly highlighted this significance in both policy and educational terms.

The ‘development’ rationale of our programmes pivots around a number of key issues and challenges: wood and poverty, wood and energy, wood and livelihoods/construction, wood and health, wood and education, wood and biodiversity, wood and sustainability, wood and climate-change, , wood and conflict/war, wood and waste and wood and economic development.

The ‘development’ rationale of our JustMusic initiative is to focus attention on our dependence on trees/wood for our music.

Education and Awareness Harnessing our love of music to help protect endangered trees.
Conservation Projects Save our Tonewoods
Fair Trade Ensure developing communities receive fair market prices.
Musical Instrument Makers Ireland is steeped in the traditional art of musical instrument-making. In Ireland: Just Music...  

Since our inception, Just Forests, have always insisted that good forest stewardship is inseparable from sustainable development, and if we fail to take it into account we risk undoing all the positive work being carried out by national and international development agencies and governments to reduce poverty and combat climate change.
