The Millennium Development Goals
The Millenium Development Goals:
Just Forests work seeks to contribute to the achievement of Goal 7 -Ensure Environmental Sustainability, of the Millennium Development Goals. This includes the targets to reduce biodiversity loss, slow deforestation and contain rising greenhouse gas emissions.
The programme has also been conceived against a backdrop of some 20 years of Just Forests activities, including 18 years of the ‘Wood of Life’ exhibition and programme and the demonstrated interest and engagement of schools, teachers, students, the general public, and in more recent times, professional bodies and politicians in the issues and the exhibition. The programme also ensures that our development education initiatives raise public awareness and understanding amongst our target groups of the underlying causes of global poverty and inequality and Ireland’s role in tackling these issues.
