The International Day of Forests in Geneva/Switzerland, on Friday 20 March 2015.
Kindly see the programme below announcing the celebrations of the International Day of Forests (IDF) 2015 in Geneva, in case you wish to join us on that occasion. Please note that on the same day, we will launch a study on Forests in the ECE Region. More information on the study will be issued separately.
Please allow me to thank those who have contributed so generously to the events of the International Day of Forests and to the study.
I would like to thank in particular the Governments of Finland, Germany, the Russian Federation, Switzerland and the United States of America for their generous support to prepare the study.
I would also like to thank the State Forests of Poland, Mr. Janusz Zaleski in particular, for the wonderful exhibition we will have at the Palais for over 5 weeks starting on 20 March as well as the Polish forest food that we will be able to taste at the Palais on IDF.
Speaking of forest food and beverages, allow me to also thank the Governments of Finland, Germany, Italy, the Russian Federation and the United States for contributing to the IDF with their specialties.
A special thank you also to our partners, UNOG and FAO, which are supporting and participating in the celebrations of the day.
I look forward to welcoming you in Geneva!
