Following the success of the International Year of Forests 2011, the United Nations (UN) through its resolution 67/200 declared the 21st of March as the International Day of Forest (IDF), with the aim to celebrate and raise public awareness about the importance of all types of forests and of trees growing outside the forests. In line with the referred UN decision, the Ministry of Forestry, supported by GIZ FORCLIME, holds a series of events celebrating the IDF 2014.
Given that the IDF on March the 21st is close to the Forester Devoted Day (FDD) dated March 16, the celebration of IDF is synchronized with the FDD, as follows:
1. A nationwide planting action on 21st of March 2014 by the Indonesian community.
2. Tree Planting by the International Community in Jakarta on 12th of March.
3. A one-day exhibition celebrating the International Forest Day 2014 on 17th of March at the premise of the Ministry of Forestry.
4. A Photo Contest though Social Media (Facebook).
