Your DGB for today is to honor our forests.
What does that mean? Well, the theme for this year’s International Day of Forests is Forests & Energy. Take a moment to watch this video, and take this quiz to learn a little something about forests and energy.
The Food & Agriculture Organization of the UN offers some additional suggestions of how we can celebrate our forests today, if you're feeling ambitious:
Organize or join events celebrating forests – tree plantings, symposiums, art exhibitions, or a photo competition. Don’t forget to tell us about it at IDF@fao.org and send us photos so we can add it to the gallery of events happening around the world
Get out into your local forest and take part in the #LoveForests video campaign
Share the logo, banner and posters - available in 13 languages
We all know the environment is feeling a little threatened lately (ok, that’s a projection, but you know what we mean), and could use our support. Plan to get out in nature this week and do some vintage activism by hugging a tree.
