International Day of Forests

By Danny Harrington, MD ITS Education Asia


In many different ways, are lives are inextricably linked to forests. Most people are oblivious to this most of the time, but simply are lives (and therefore survival) are inextricably intertwined with multiple other organisms both larger and external to us, and smaller and internal to us (think gut microbiome for example). The sustainable management plus conservation strategies for forests are essential to human survival.

The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 21 March the International Day of Forests in 2012 to celebrate and raise awareness of the importance of all types of forests. Countries are encouraged to undertake local, national and international efforts to organize activities involving forests and trees, such as tree planting campaigns.

The organizers are the United Nations Forum on Forests and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), in collaboration with Governments, the Collaborative Partnership on Forests and other relevant organizations in the field.
