Every year 21st March is celebrated as International Forest Day. The day aims to raise public awareness of the values, importance and contribution of forests to balance the life cycle on earth.
The agency encourages countries to undertake local, national and international efforts to organize activities involving forests and trees, such as tree planting campaigns etc.
By promoting forests sustained survival, we ensure our economy, ecosystem, and species also continue to thrive. The day promotes Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) where forest-dependent communities can continue to grow and come out of poverty.
