Each member of the network will commit to the active participation in the Network´s activities, as well as its active exploration of the concept in its competence area.

Each member of the network will contribute to the development of the network by providing the necessary support to activities such as:

  • travel to attend the network’s meetings, study-tours, and other events,
  • organisation of meetings, seminars, field-trips, study-visits, conferences, etc.,
  • publications, including translations,
  • communication (website, brochures, newsletter, etc.).

The network’s members will contribute financially to activities under the form of expenses made by themselves, within their own areas of competencies and within their own budget.

Activities and costs will be distributed among the members of the network according to the annual action plan adopted by the Assembly, on the basis of the proposals and financial commitment of each member.

Indicatively, the annual financial contribution of each member will be equivalent to a minimum of 25000 Euros per year for members from the EU and candidate countries. Members from other countries will inform the Secretariat about their annual financial commitment.

Core funding for the support of the initiative, and especially for the Secretariat of the network, is provided by the Junta de Castilla y León (Spain), in the framework of a broader participation in the International Model Forest Network.
