UN International Day of Forest - 21 March 2021

Friday, February 26 , 2021 208

The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 21 March the International Day of Forests (IDF) in 2012. The Day celebrates and raises 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. The theme for each International Day of Forests is chosen by the collaborative partenship on forests.

 

The theme for 2021 is Forest restauration: a path to recovery and well-being.

Restoring forests will improve our environment.

The world is losing 10 million hectares of forest – about the size of Iceland – each year, and land degradation affects almost 2 billion hectares, an area larger than South America. Forest loss and degradation emit large quantities of climate-warming gases, and at least 8 percent of forest plants and 5 percent of forest animals are at extremely high risk of extinction. The restoration and sustainable management of forests, on the other hand, will address the climate-change and biodiversity crises simultaneously while producing goods and services needed for sustainable development. 

 

How will you mark the day?

  • Organize or join events celebrating forests: tree plantings, symposiums, art exhibitions, photo competitions or host a student debate. Don’t forget to tell us about it at IDF@fao.org and send us photos so we can add them to the gallery of events happening around the world.
  • Share the logo, banner and posters - available in 13 languages
  • Join the conversation on social media using the #IntlForestDay hashtag. Pass on some of this year's key messages or take a photo of your favourite forest and share it with us and your friends.
