European Forest Week 2013

Santa Claus is European Forest Week Ambassador

Santa Claus has taken time off his busy schedule to accept the role of European Forest Week Ambassador. ‘We need to look after forests to ensure they are a gift that keeps on giving,’ he says.  In this one minute spot, Santa Claus introduces children to his magical, forest-covered homeland and sends his message to Europe's children that forests are of vital importance and need to be taken good care of.

It provided a unique communication and outreach opportunity to raise the visibility of the forest sector and the multiple services forests contribute to our daily lives. The European Forest Week was made of forest-related celebrations organized by different public and private organizations throughout Europe.
