The Bulletin on Bruzz: 26 January
The Sonian Wood Coop
The Sonian Forest is a big producer of timber - 20,000 cubic metres per year. To appreciate how much wood that is, it takes three full size lorries to transport just 100 cubic metres. Since about 10 years ago, 75% of this wood is exported to China where it is made into objects that may very well come back to Europe at great environmental cost. A collective named the Sonian Wood Coop has been formed with the objective of keeping the wood here and transforming it here in a way that makes economic sense. Stephan Kampelman, a member of the collective and an economist on the faculty of architecture of the ULB, tells us how they plan to do that.
