International Year of Forests
2011 | International Years of Forests

The General Assembly of the United Nations (UN) declared 2011 to be the International Year of Forests, so continuing the course set previously by the International Year of Biodiversity. The aim is to raise awareness of forests, their benefits and the threats to their conservation. The Secretary of State for Forestry and Rural Development, in partnership with the National Commission of UNESCO, is responsible for co-ordinating the International Year of Forest in Portugal. SPEA is one of the organisations that make up the executive commission in Portugal.

Aims:
- To inform people about the different types of Portuguese forest;
- To explain the roles of the forest ecosystems (water, sequestration of CO2, biodiversity, erosion control, etc);
- To inform people about the economic, social and cultural importance of the Portuguese forests;
- To promote citizenship and the active involvement of citizens in the defence of forests;
- To promote scientific knowledge and technological innovation in the forestry sector.

The program of events to celebrate the International Year of Forests 2011 will continue throughout the year. Current proposals include workshops, photographic competitions, book publications, conferences, school competitions and a Forestry Gala. For further information see www.florestas2011.org.pt
