International Day of Forests : Healthy Forests, Healthy People


We don’t necessarily think of forests when we drink a glass of water, write in our notebooks, take fever-reducing pills, or build a house, but these things, and many other aspects of our lives, are connected in one way or another to forests. connect together......

Forests, and their sustainable management and resource use, are key to addressing climate change and promoting the prosperity and well-being of present and future generations. Forests also play a vital role in alleviating poverty and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals 

Forests provide us with priceless ecological, economic, social and health benefits, yet fires, pests, drought and unprecedented deforestation are destroying forests across the globe.

The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed March 21 the International Day of Forests in 2012 to celebrate and raise public awareness of the importance of all types of forests. Countries are encouraged to organize forest and tree-related activities, such as tree planting events, at local, national and international levels.

The theme for the 2023 International Day of Forests is "Forests and Health".

Forests are of great benefit to human health. By cleaning water, purifying air, and capturing carbon, forests combat climate change, provide food and lifesaving medicines, and improve our well-being.

We have a responsibility to protect these precious natural resources.

The 2023 International Day of Forests calls for giving back to forests, not always taking, because healthy forests make healthy people.
