International Day of Forests 21 March 2017

This global celebration of forests provides a platform to raise awareness of the importance of all types of woodlands and trees, and celebrate the ways in which they sustain and protect us.

This year we highlight the importance of wood energy in improving people's lives, powering sustainable development and mitigating climate change.

The theme for this year's edition is Forests and Energy.
