Today I will celebrate. And my friends and colleagues in the Greenpeace Forest campaign will too. But this is nothing different for us. We do this every day. But maybe, just maybe, the focus that a day like today brings may help our work to protect the world’s remaining forests.
For Greenpeace, every day is a day to celebrate forests. We campaign to protect forests because of the vast range of amazing biodiversity they support, because they capture and contain climate changing greenhouse gases, because they are home to millions of people and – last but not least – because without healthy thriving forests, planet Earth cannot sustain life.
So let’s all celebrate forests today and every day – by speaking up and standing up for their protection.
