International Day of Forests
International Day of Forests, observed for the first time on March 21, 2013, was established by resolution of the United Nations General Assembly on November 28, 2012. To be held each year on the 21st day of March, the occasion is intended to be one of the world’s leading global platforms for people with an interest in forests and climate change to share their views and work together to ensure forests are suitably incorporated into any future climate change mitigation and adaption strategies.
In 2019, the International Day of Forests (IDF) will address the theme, Forests and Education. It will seek to raise awareness on how sustainably managed forests provide a wide array of contributions in this area.
