World Bamboo Day 2017


Where will you be ? How will you celebrate BAMBOO ?

Mark your calendar for September 18 -- or anytime near then -- as we continue the tradition begun in Thailand at the 8th World Bamboo Congress, 2009!

You can certainly make your own celebration, or you can join others. There are opportunities not to be missed.

In Mexico, the very first World Bamboo Workshop <Design Green> has been organized to coincide with World Bamboo Day. Thanks to our sponsors Bambuver and DICMA Trade, we will have a conference and hands-on learning event held in Huatusco, Veracruz state. The dates are 14-17 September. All details can be found on the website,

In the Philippines, in YES City, Tanay, Rizal, the non-profit group ALC Foundation has organized Kawayanihan to celebrate World Bamboo Day on September 23. The highlight of this activity will be a bamboo planting project on a mountainside! To volunteer and participate, please see or

We realize not everyone is following Facebook, but that's the most active site for posting World Bamboo Day celebrations. We will try to keep the WBO website up to date, but the celebrations have become spontaneous and global, and we are so happy about that!
