What does this mean?
- Are we going to cut fewer trees this year? That would be nice.
- Are we going to fine companies this year that cut more trees than they replace?
- Are we going to make sure that governments around the World will enforce sustainable forests management? Do people know what sustainable forest management means?
- What does Year of Forests mean for BC? Can we get rid of the Liberal government – probably the most anti-environmental party ever ruled BC?
- How many trees are we going to plant this year?
- Can we make every citizen of this planet to plant a tree this year? That would be at least 6 billion trees!
I am just hoping that this isn’t going to be a year of the … fill in the blank. What happened in previous years during the Year of the …. ? Did we achieve anything? Can we make sure that we will achieve something this year?
Let me remind you of this:
If you want to plan 1 year ahead, sew seeds,
If you want to plan 10 years ahead, plant trees,
If you want to plan 100 years ahead, educate people.
