On Macrh 21, the International community celebrated the 2019 International Day of Forests (IDF).

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 this year’s celebration was: ‘Forests and Education.’

According to the UN Environment, a single tree can remove over a ton of CO2 from the atmosphere in its lifetime.
