International Year of Forests 2011

In its resolution 61/193 of 20 December 2006, the General Assembly proclaimed 2011 as the International Year of Forests and invited Governments, the United Nations system, relevant non-governmental organisations, the private sector and other actors to make concerted efforts to raise awareness at all levels to strengthen the sustainable management, conservation and sustainable development of all types of forests for the benefit of current and future generations.

The International Year of Forests 2011 offers a unique opportunity to raise public awareness of the challenges facing many of the world’s forests and the people who depend on them. Great success stories and valuable lessons on how to promote
sustainable forest management already exist. The Year provides a means to bring these voices together and build momentum towards greater public participation in forest activities around the world.

The official logo for the International Year has been developed in collaboration with the Graphics Design Unit of the UN
Department of Public Information. The logo received approval by the UN Publications Board on 9 July 2010, and was launched in the six official United Nations languages: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish on 19 July 2010. Source: UN

    United Nations launches year-long celebration of vital role of world’s forests

    Recognizing the role that forests play in everything from mitigating climate change to providing wood, medicines and livelihoods for people worldwide, the United Nations today kicked off a year-long celebration to raise awareness of the value of this important resource.

    “Forests for People” is the main theme of the International Year of Forests , which was launched at a ceremony at UN Headquarters in New York attended by world leaders, Nobel Laureate Wangari Maathai and forest experts.

    Hope in a Changing Climate

    Clip of the winner of the International Forest Film Festival. This documentary demonstrates that it is possible to rehabilitate large-scale damaged ecosystems, to restore ecosystem functions in areas where they have been lost, to fundamentally improve the lives of people who have been trapped in poverty for generations and to sequester carbon naturally.

    The Ancient Forests

    Clip of the winner of Special Jury Award in the International Forest Film Festival. Can you imagine what it would be like to have your home torn down around you and destroyed? It’s a horrible thought, but that’s exactly what is happening in forests around the world. With an area of forest the size of a football field being destroyed every two seconds, endangered species such as gorillas, orangutans and chimpanzees are at risk of extinction within our lifetimes. This Greenpeace film shows all too clearly what this means. With the voices of Sir David Attenborough and Ewan McGregor and actor Andy Serkis, it is a stark reminder of what we stand to lose if we aren’t able to save our ancient forests. But, there is still time.
