WOOD IS GOOD!

World Wood Day is on March 21st, the vernal equinox, to highlight wood as an eco-friendly and renewable biomaterial and to raise awareness on the key role wood plays in a sustainable world through biodiversity and forest conservation. The day serves as a reminder of the importance and true value of wood and its responsible uses.

EXPLORE AND EXPERIENCE

A major event is organized annually on March 21, usually week-long, to celebrate wood across disciplines. Artists, educators, hobbyists, and industries come together from different lands, languages and cultures to share experiences, skills and passions for wood. The event centralizes various uses of wood which allows extrapolation and eventual application to individual lifestyles. Satellite events are organized in different regions throughout the year to continue the exploration and experiences.

International Wood Culture Society (IWCS) is a non-profit, non-governmental international network of wood enthusiasts, dedicated to the research, education and promotion of wood culture.
