PEFC created this cinematic and beautifully crafted short documentary about people who work in certified forests around the world – from a forester in Italy to a fire tower operator in Chile. The documentary also offers a glimpse of some of the people further down the value chain, who have benefited from forest products or work with timber. It explores why forests are so valuable to these individuals, as well as being crucial to the environmental well being of the planet.

The documentary is part of a series called Meet Humans of the Forests, which showcases real stories of people who love forests, generate a livelihood from forest related activities and protect forests and the environment.
