International Day of Forests

The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 21 March the International Day of Forests (IDF) in 2012. 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 each International Day of Forests is chosen by the Collaborative Partnership on Forests.  

The theme for 2024 is forests and innovation.
