WMF has collaborated in the past with the Tree Council of Ireland in promoting wood to schools. We produced the posters Wood: A Renewable Resource, for circulation to secondary schools with help from Akzo Nobel-Sikkens and COFORD.
We decided in January to launch a poster for Primary Schools 5th and 6th classes. This would require producing 4,000 posters to be distributed to 3,500 schools at a cost of €6,800 for design, print, postage and packaging. The cost was prohibitive but the Tree Council came up with funding for 75% of postage and packaging and with support from COFORD as part of our wood promotion budget and WMF core funding we went ahead with the project.
