How will I celebrate World Bamboo Day 2018?

Nine years ago, we celebrated the first World Bamboo Day in Bangkok. This great initiative was the idea of WBO President, Shri Kamesh Salam. Thanks to the Thai Royal Forestry Department, this dedicated day to honor bamboo - September 18 - is gaining momentum around the world.

World Bamboo Day and the 10th World Bamboo Congress.

World Bamboo Day is a day of celebration 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.
