Twitter celebrates International Day of Forests with incredible pictures and videos
International Day of Forests 2023: From showcasing beautiful forests to delivering messages to create awareness, people are tweeting different things.
The International Day of Forests is observed on March 21 every year to not just highlight the importance of forests but also to create awareness about their conservation. According to the official UN website, on this day, “Countries are encouraged to undertake local, national and international efforts to organise activities involving forests and trees, such as tree planting campaigns.” Expectedly, to observe this day, many also take to social media to share their thoughts and ideas. The same is happening on International Day of Forests 2023 as people are taking to Twitter to post various tweets.
IFS officer Ramesh Pandey took the opportunity to share this thought-provoking tweet to observe the day. “We hardly remember forests when we breathe, drink water, take medicine or write on a paper. We hardly appreciate that forests are directly linked to our health and well being and saving them is nothing but saving ourselves. Today is International Day of Forests,” he tweeted along with this incredible picture.
This Twitter user shared a beautiful video of a forest. “International Day of Forests! ‘Forests And Health’. Forests give so much to our health, purify the water, clean the air, capture carbon to fight climate change, provide food & life-saving medicines, and improve our well-being. It’s for us & we must ensure safe guard of our resources,” they also tweeted along with the video.
“Wishing a very Happy International day of Forests to everyone, as we know forests are an integral part of our lives and we must do all that we can to save them,” posted another. Alongside, they tweeted a video showing a group of deer in a forest.
