The World Rainforest Day team is thrilled to invite everyone to come together on June 22nd for a powerful day of virtual action. World Rainforest Day is a 24-hour celebration of our world’s rainforests, essential places for biodiversity, economic growth, and inspiration.

Our partners are busy creating online events that transcend distance. This team of partners will engage global audiences to increase awareness and meaningful action in support of vulnerable rainforests. Global efforts bring hope and inspiration for preserving and protecting the world we love.

World Rainforest Day 2020 is about giving. Not only giving our global audience rainforest-focused content, but also giving the gift of inspiration and motivation during a time of stress and uncertainty.

We look forward to sharing this message with the world, and invite you to celebrate with us to spread this rainforest gift!

History

World Rainforest Day was launched in 2017 as a collaborative effort to raise awareness and encourage action to protect our world’s rainforests. Given the rapid acceleration of climate change and human impacts, rainforests around the world are facing unprecedented threats towards biodiversity, carbon capture, and climate stabilization.

Rainforests are among the most vulnerable ecosystems in the world, and hold more than half of the world’s biodiversity. It is vital for our future to focus on preserving these important niches. 

On World Rainforest Day, we celebrate the local efforts being made to protect these ecosystems and encourage the world to be more aware and take action to join these efforts. We all have the power to inspire and make an impact, and by doing so, transform the world into a better and more sustainable planet. 

A New Format

World Rainforest Day 2020 is shifting its emphasis to a virtual 24-hour presence given the current global pandemic. Now, more than ever, this event has the power to reach beyond borders to unite people in the common goal of rainforest protection.

This day is dedicated to providing a platform for partners to offer content for various audiences to enjoy and increase their awareness and efforts towards rainforest conservation. Content may include livestreams, films, virtual tours, panel discussions, games, social media challenges, guided meditations, and more!

We will be streaming content with various themes through a single channel available on WRD sites and embedded in partner sites and streams. There will be something for everyone, so make sure you tune in!

Join the Celebration!
