Il 20 dicembre 2006, l’Assemblea Generale delle Nazioni Unite ha adottato una risoluzione proclamando il 2011 Anno Internazionale delle Foreste per sostenere l’impegno di favorire la gestione, conservazione e lo sviluppo sostenibile delle foreste di tutto il mondo.
International Year of Forests 2011 Logo and Guidelines

The International Year of Forests 2011 (Forests 2011) logo is designed to convey the theme of “Forests for People” celebrating the central role of people in the sustainable management, conservation and sustainable development of our world’s forests. The iconographic elements in the design depict some of the multiple values of forests and the need for a 360‐degree perspective: forests provide shelter to people and habitat to biodiversity; are a source of food, medicine and clean water; and play a vital role in maintaining a stable global climate and environment. All of these elements taken together reinforce the message that forests are vital to the survival and well being of people everywhere, all 7 billion of us.

The logo was originally made available in all 6 UN official languages, and has since been translated into over 40 local languages including Armenian, Bulgarian, Catalan, Croatian, Czech, Dutch, Estonian, Finnish, German, Greek, Icelandic, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Kyrgyz, Latvian, Polish, Portuguese, Slovakian, Slovenian, Swedish, Swahili Swedish, and Turkish. If you would like to receive a copy of the other (local) language versions please email the UNFF Secretariat.
