Yes, I know I’m a pain with the international day of forests each year. In 2018, the chosen topic is the importance of urban forests.
I apologize in advance, but I’m going to start this post with a bit of philosophy. Let’s see. I used to be skeptical about this International Day of stuff until I got to Twitter. In that parallel world, every international day sparks conversations and starts discussions (some of them more enlightening than others) about topics that wouldn’t be in focus otherwise. It’s obvious that the people that are truly engaged with the problematic will talk about it for more than one day a year, but the interesting bit about international days is their ability to include a larger part of population in the conversation. This is obviously very enriching.
