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 – to protect natural resources and the environment, to ensure sustainable utilization, to promote new cultivation of bamboo for new industries in regions around the world, as well as promote traditional uses locally for community economic development.
Join us in Damyang, Korea this year for a huge celebration! September 18, 2015 is the Opening Day of the 10th World Bamboo Congress, and part of the larger event, the World Bamboo Fair 2015. For more information visit worldbamboocongress.org.
