Within the program ‘Research for Sustainable Forestry‘ promoted by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research the cross section project ‘Bi-FONA-Wald‘ is carried out by the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training. It takes place in Berlin/Brandenburg. The Book Forest is part of the overall project ‘Modellregion Berliner Wald und Holz‘.

The Book Forest contributes to sustainable vocational education and deals with the value chain forest-wood-book. It was developed and realised by BAUFACHFRAU Berlin e.V. as an interdisciplinary, project orientated cooperation of apprentices of forestry, carpentry, cabinetmaking, media design, printing and bookselling.

The project adopts the idea of putting up a bookcase in a public space, in which people could release their used books to be picked up by others. This way of free dissemination, called ‘bookcrossing‘, is by now a worldwide movement organized in a central database ( Registration of books enables following their travels through the world and communication about the books.
