International Day of Forests is March 21 2013

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

The United Nations General Assembly has proclaimed March 21 the International Day of Forests. The Day will celebrate and raise awareness of the importance of all types of forests. On each International Day of Forests, countries are encouraged to undertake local, national and international efforts to organize activities involving forests and trees, such as tree planting campaigns.  Click here for the full text of the UN Resolution.

The UN is interested in seeing how you celebrate the International Day of Forests by emailing them photos of your initiatives for publication on the website.  Show the world how trees, forests and their surrounding environments make a difference to the community where you live. Plant a tree, plant the future.
