2011 ~ International Year of Forests

Posted by Biophile under: Community News .

Someone Somewhere designated 2011 as the International Year of Forests, and to me it doesn’t matter who. What is interesting is the attempt at expanding general awareness through their campaign of presenting trees and forests with regards towards our complete interdependence with them. The seven and a half minute film produced to introduce the subject and invite a deeper awareness is simply gorgeous.

GoodPlanet.org has also created an elegant website offering a greater depth of information to follow up with, including a series of free posters for schools that are of the same highest quality as the film. There are numerous resources to be found here, and a photography contest to boot.

When all is said and done, so much focus on forests makes me want to go take a walk in one. See ya!

Even with advanced science and technology, with superb communications and computation, our secular society remains without satisfactory meaning or the social discipline needed for a life leading to emotional, aesthetic, and spiritual fulfillment. ~ Thomas Berry
