The United Nations General Assembly declared 21st March as the World Forest Day Or International Day of Forests in 2012. It was to commemorate and raise awareness of the importance of all types of forests among the public.
World Forest Day is to encourage every one of us to undertake local, national, and international steps to organize events to spread awareness about our forest and environment.
Schools can organize virtual activities or competitions tomorrow or in the coming week involving forests and trees, such as painting, poem, or songwriting, adopt some park or trees, brainstorming sessions to reduce the use of paper, quiz on trees and plants, etc.
Just for knowledge sharing :- Botany, also called plant science(s), plant biology or phytology, is the science of plant life and a branch of biology.
