APPEAL OF THE DIRECTOR OF ENVIRONMENT ON WORLD BAMBOO DAY, 18TH SEPTEMBER 2019

 APPEAL OF THE DIRECTOR OF ENVIRONMENT ON WORLD BAMBOO DAY, 18TH SEPTEMBER 2019. 

 
World Bamboo Day was declared by the Thai Royal Forest Department on 18th September 2009 in Bangkok, during the 8th World Bamboo Congress held at the Imperial Queen’s Park Hotel. This declaration is an effort to increase the awareness of bamboo globally. Where bamboo grows naturally, bamboo has been a daily element, but its utilization has not always been sustainable due to exploitation. 
 
The World Bamboo Organization aims to bring the potential of bamboo to a more elevated exposure – to protect natural resources and the environment, to ensure sustainable utilization, to promote new cultivation of bamboo for new industries in regions around the world, as well as promote traditional uses locally for community economic development.
 
 Bamboo is used as food, fiber, fuel, construction material etc., it is a effective landscape restoration used for economic development. It holds hope for climate change mitigation and for our future.
Let’s celebrate World Bamboo Day, 18th September, and do something good for the Earth.  Plant a bamboo!  Talk bamboo!  Build with bamboo!  Sing with bamboo!  Wear bamboo! Eat bamboo!  Feed bamboo!  Breathe bamboo!  Walk among the bamboo, and feel good.
 
On this day, I request all to take efforts to create awareness among the people to conserve bamboo.
