Dovetail Partners Encourages Celebration of Forests and Water Quality on March 21st

International day of forests

(Minneapolis, MN) - Celebrate forests on March 21st, the annual International Day of Forests as promoted by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. The theme of the 2017 International Day of Forests is 'Forests and Energy'.  

In 1971, at the request of the European Confederation, the FAO's member governments supported the observance of an annual World Forestry Day on March 21st. That same year, in the United States, a presidential proclamation declared World Forestry Day to be part of a week of activities and ceremonies aimed at celebrating the role of forests in everyone's life. Forty years later, 2011 was declared the International Year of Forests as a global celebration of people's action for sustainable forest management. March 21, 2013 was proclaimed the first annual International Day of Forests by the United Nations General Assembly. The goal is to continue raising awareness of the importance of all types of forests.  

Additional information about the vital role for forests can be viewed in the following International Day of Forests video.

On each International Day of Forests, countries are encouraged to undertake local, national and international efforts to organize activities involving forests and trees, such as tree planting campaigns. Actively celebrate on March 21st by planting trees, celebrating forests, and showing gratitude for the products and services they provide in your community.    More information and activities for the International Day of Forests can be found here: http://www.fao.org/forestry/international-day-of-forests/en/
