International Day of Forests

Monday, March 07 , 2022 538

The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 21 March the International Day of Forests (IDF) in 2012. The Day celebrates and raises awareness of the importance of all types of forests. 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.

The theme for 2022 is "Forests and sustainable production and consumption."

For millions of people across the world, wood helps provide safe drinking water, food and shelter - but wood can do much more and is a renewable resource when forests are managed sustainably. Join us in celebrating the International Day of Forests on 21 March and choose sustainable wood for people and the planet.

How will you mark the day?

  • Organize or join events celebrating forests: tree plantings, symposiums, art exhibitions, photo competitions or host a student debate.
  • Don’t forget to tell us about it at and send us photos so we can add them to the gallery of events happening around the world.
  • Share the logo, banner and posters - available in 13 languages.
  • Join the conversation on social media using the #IntlForestDay hashtag. Pass on some of this year's key messages or take a photo of your favourite forest and share it with us and your friends.
