An important day for the lungs of our planet! Today is International Forest Day!

Every year on this day, March 21, the International Day of Forests is celebrated and it becomes an opportunity to remind us of the importance of forests for our planet. It is a day that raises awareness of the key role that forests play in maintaining ecological balance, providing habitats for the diversity of life, and in the fight against climate change.

Forests are a source of life as they provide a wide range of ecological, economic, and social benefits. They are the lungs of our planet, absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen through the process of photosynthesis to make this planet suitable for our life, and also the life of numerous plant and animal species, many of which are endangered or endemic.


On the economic side, forests also provide sources of wood for various industries, paper production, and many other daily needs such as heating. Of course, there is tourism, which contributes to economies around the world.

However, to ensure all this in the long term and make it available to generations after us, it is important to practice sustainable management and use of our beautiful forests, to ensure the renewal and preservation of their resources.

Despite all these important functions, forests around the world face different threats. From deforestation for industrial activities to fires, climate change, and carelessness, forests are exposed to numerous challenges. We remind you that it is necessary to take concrete steps to protect them.
