Relative Site : World Wood Day Foundation 2014 World Wood Day 2013 World Wood Day

World Wood Day (WWD) is a cultural event celebrated annually on March 21st to highlight wood as an eco-friendly and renewable biomaterial and to raise awareness on the key role wood plays in a sustainable world through biodiversity and forest conservation. Furthermore, this unique celebration will remind humans of the importance and true value of wood and its responsible use.

The first official public WWD celebration was held in Tanzania in 2013 under the theme "A Cultural Approach to Achieve Wood is Good." 2014 WWD examined the concept "Wood in a Changing Culture" and was held in China. Several regional celebrations were also held during 2014 WWD.

The 2015 WWD international celebration will be held in Turkey with the theme "Wood & Humanity" to rediscover and recognize the contribution and beauty of wood as well as recall the rethink its significance in contemporary society. As with the 2014 celebration, several regional celebrations will also be organized. An assortment of weeklong campaigns is specially designed to explore a strong correlation between wood and humans. Highlights include a symposium, woodcraft activities, children's events, exhibitions, performances of various wooden musical instruments and others. All showcase the positive interactions between humans and wood. Everyone is cordially welcomed to get involved in our wood celebrations and to personally experience "Wood is Good."
