This weekly television programme which discusses social issues making the news in the region will focus on forests.

Are our forests healthy? Are they overexploited? How should the production of wood for construction and energy production be developed while protecting the environment and biodiversity? What role do private forests play? What will our forests look like tomorrow?

The presenter Francine Dubail tries to answer these questions during thirty minutes, with different participants: Christopher Gallemant, regional representative for the NFB (French National Forestry Office) of the Lorraine region which manages three quarters of the forests in the Lorraine; Henri Plauche Gillon, president of the Private French Forests; Erwin Dreyer, regional delegate of INRA (National Institute for Agricultural Research) and Raynald Rigolot of the Flore 54 association.
