The Wood Innovation Group (TWIG) initially started in 2015 as an in-person meetup gathering under the name “Outside The Box Meetup Group”. In 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic, TWIG emerged as a response to staying connected. TWIG is creating an industry-leading forest products innovation ecosystem, rooted in wood-science, informed by craft, and focused on increasing connectivity through design and creativity.
The ‘Monthly’ event is a recurring get-together to connect around topics, projects, and ideas that bring value to forest-based resources in BC. Each event has a featured guest, and we invite them to tell their story and share the why and how behind what they do.
The focus of the Monthly over the next few months will be centered around people who have developed and manufactured products, either through partnerships or their own production capacity. Information on our past Monthly events and future events can be seen at twigbc.ca/monthly. To get updated information directly, sign up for our mailing list on the website and/or follow TWIG on LinkedIn.
