dRMM’s Timber Beacon shortlisted for COP26

5 August 2021

dRMM has designed a reusable timber pavilion for COP26 - the UN climate change talks to be held in Glasgow in November this year.

‘Timber Beacon’ is dRMM’s response to the collective brief of a unique global timber industry collaboration. The allegiance of more than 25 innovators in engineered mass timber and wood-based products, global forest growth and development, is led by the UK Timber Trade Federation and CEI-Bois, the European Confederation of Woodworking Industries.

“As world leaders discuss our global responsibilities and collective response to climate change during COP26, our message for the future will be powerfully three dimensional: in wood there is hope,” said dRMM founding director, Professor Alex de Rijke.

Sponsorship is being sought to realise the full potential of this project. To find out more, contact paul.brannen@cei-bois.org. This initiative is supported by UK Aid, under the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office’s FGMC programme (Forest Governance, Markets and Climate).

The timber pavilion is a beacon of hope
