SAVE EARTH, SAVE LIFE
Today is World Forestry Day! Celebrated on March 21, this environmental holiday celebrates the value of forests and forestry to our community. Also known as International Day of Forests, it’s a worldwide celebration that anyone can take part in!
The International Day of Forests was established on the 21st day of March, by determination of the United Nations General Assembly on November 28, 2012. Every year, different occasions celebrate and bring issues to light of the significance of a wide range of woods, and trees outside woodlands, for the advantage of present and who and what is to come.
Nations are urged to embrace endeavours to arrange nearby, national, and universal exercises including woods and trees, for example, tree planting efforts, on International Day of Forests. The Secretariat of the United Nations Forum on Forests, in a joint effort with the Food and Agriculture Organization, encourages the usage of such occasions as a team with governments, the Collaborative Partnership on Forests, and worldwide, provincial and subregional associations. Global Day of Forests was watched out of the blue on March 21, 2013.
Why World Forestry Day is Celebrated
Forests are a very essential part of life on Earth. They always fulfil the demands of human beings by providing shadow, shelter, refreshment including clean air and water. In the modern world of growing global population increases the demands of forest products so the forests are at big risks of deforestation and degradation.
