Global celebration of forests
21 March has been declared to be the International Day of Forests by the United Nations General Assembly
The International Day of Forests (IDF) logo (the "IDF logo" hereafter) was designed by the United
Nations Graphic Design Unit to celebrate the central role of people in the sustainable management, conservation
and sustainable development of our world's forests. The design is based on the International
Year of Forests (Forests 2011) logo.
The iconographic elements in the design depict many of the multiple values of forests and
the need for a 360-degree perspective: forests provide shelter to people and habitat to
biodiversity; are a source of food, medicine and clean water; and play a vital role in maintaining
a stable global climate and environment.
All of these elements taken together reinforce the message that forests are vital to the survival
and well being of people everywhere, all 7 billion of us.
