A Cultural Approach to Achieve “Wood is Good”
March 21st is officially designated and recognized as the International Day of Forests by the United Nations General Assembly and 2013 is the first year of recognition. World Wood Day is celebrated on the same day as the International Day of Forests to raise the awareness on how wood plays a key role for a sustainable future. The idea for world wood day was first advocated in 2009 by International Wood Culture Society along with partners and friends. The idea behind World Wood Day is a cultural approach to realize the concept wood is good. To celebrate the initiation, World Wood Day works in concert with Forest Day to bring wood, together with forests, into people’s life.
