This year’s campaign aims to raise awareness of the contributions of forests in building sustainable cities and communities. Urban forests, trees and parks provide multi-faceted benefits to urban communities, from cooling the environment and saving energy, to providing health benefits, drinking water and building resilience against climate change. The theme is of particular relevance to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and SDG15 and SDG11 in particular.
