Saving the forest means saving the climate

The 26th United Nations Conference on Climate Change will have an impact on the environmental debate that humanity is currently having. How exactly? The world will be able to understand it in early November. But the need to slow global warming will remain unchanged. Until there are immediate, rapid, and large-scale reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, we will not hold back the rise in temperature within 1.5 degrees. Above is the moment of non-return, after which the number and scale of fires, floods, and other extreme weather events in the world will only increase. Humanity needs to take a more proactive stance for the greenhouse effect to slow down. International days are ideal for mobilizing political will, resources, and education. A great opportunity to celebrate and increase efforts to preserve the Earth's forests is FSC Friday. On this day, the staff of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) around the world, responsible forestry and timber companies, retail, educational institutions, and anyone who shares a love for the forest are engaged in education for the conservation of forests and forest resources.
