International Day of Forests. Theme for 2019: Forests and Education

In 2019, the International Day of Forests will address the theme, "Forests and Education", with the idea of raising awareness on how sustainably managed forests provide a wide array of contributions in this area.

The UN General Assembly proclaimed 21 March the International Day of Forests in 2012. The Day celebrates and raises awareness of the importance of all types of forests. The theme for each International Day of Forests is chosen by the Collaborative Partnership on Forests (CPF), whose members agreed in 2017 that the Day’s theme would provide an opportunity to highlight specific forest contributions to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development by considering topics of the annual sessions of the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF).
