The 21st of March2013 was is the first annual International Day of Forests. From 1972 until now, 21 March was celebrated as World Forestry Day, but last year the UN General Assembly upgraded it to an official UN Observance Day. In this video, Peter Holmgren CIFOR's Director General likes to share his thoughts on this day and argues for connecting the forests to the landscape and to our wider society and needs. According to the UN resolution, today is not just about forests, but about the entire landscape.
