Forest Heroes: Yury Lyahovyi, Ukraine

The protagonist of the 5-minute video is Yury Lyahovyi from Chernihiv, Ukraine. He works in the Association of Wood Producing and Timber Processing Enterprises and defends the interests of forest business. He believes that only sustainable and legal forest management can bring long-term profit to business. Yury wants Ukraine to be a prospering forest country and leave healthy forest to his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. FLEG publications helped him analyze the forest legislation and propose ways for its improvement.

The FLEG II Forest Heroes series is dedicated to people who take care of the forest and save it for future generations. All Forest Heroes have something else in common: they have all worked in partnership with FLEG II. The Program, funded by the European Union, is completing its work this year. The Forest Heroes series is one of the ways to talk about the work done over the 5 years since the launch of FLEG II.

The video was produced by Panda Agency.
