Take part in the video campaign on forest education!

We are inviting students, teachers, professors and school administrators from now until the end of March 2021 to help us promote the Global Forest Education Project on social media by doing the following:

1. Using a phone or other video recording equipment, take a short video (less than 30 seconds) of yourself. Start with a short introduction (name, affiliation, country) and then in very simple language explain why forest education is so important in a sentence or two. Examples:

  • Forest education is vital to train a future generation of foresters who will sustainably manage the world’s forests and the many benefits they provide for people, animals and the environment.
  • Forest education is important to help address misconceptions around forestry and help maximize the contributions of forests and trees to sustainable development.

 2. Upload the video to your own social media channels and don't forget to include the project hashtag in your post: #GlobalForestEducation

3. Please tag us on Twitter and Facebook and also on any regional, national or local associations who you think might be interested in the project.  Helpful tags:

  • Twitter: @FAOForestry @itto_sfm @IUFRO
  • Facebook: @ITTOSFM @IUFRO

4. Send us an email at [email protected] with the links to your post so we can help disseminate and share with partners!

5. Whether or not you are posting it on social media,  we also encourage participants to share the videos with us directly by email at [email protected] via  WeTransfer for potential promotion on the social media accounts listed above. A compilation of the videos will also be assembled and used for promotion, including at International Conference on Forest Education.
