International Day of Forests

21st March 2019

Event Overview

This global celebration of forests provides a platform to raise awareness of the importance of all types of woodlands and trees, and celebrate the ways in which they sustain and protect us. This year we highlight the importance of wood energy in improving people's lives, powering sustainable development and mitigating climate change. Increasingly, children have been shown to live a life that is detached from nature, trees are incredibly grounding and your pupils will love the opportunity to reconnect with these wonderful beings. There are many resources to explore on our site relating to trees and below we have listed just a couple of our favourites.
