The winner of the 2014 FSC Denmark Design Award, Sigrid Juel Jensen, has won a trip to Canada, where she will visit FSC-certified forests, develop a version of her winning design and get a close look at FSC and responsible forest management in Canada.
It is the ninth consecutive year that the FSC Denmark has sent the winner of the FSC Design Award on a trip to an FSC-certified forest somewhere in the world. The purpose is to show how FSC makes a difference for forests, animals and people, and how the choice of sustainable wood has a big impact on the forest and its inhabitants.
