The three-day 19th China Hunan (Zhangjiajie) International Forest Protection Festival 2019 will open on October 25. The Zhangjiajie Municipal People’s Government announced it on September 10.
The festival was initiated in 1991. After 28 years of hard work and efforts, it has developed into a comprehensive festival that spreads ecological civilization and promotes forestry and green industry development. It has been widely recognized and participated by international organizations and people from all walks of life. It is one of the top ten natural ecological festivals in China and a major forest protection brand in China.
The theme of this year is “Forests-Our Homeland”. The festival aims to present Zhangjiajie’s fresh air which is attributed to forest resources and ecological advantages. The air contains an average negative oxygen ion of more than 100,000 per cubic centimeter, which has a relaxing effect on the body. Discussions on achievements and experiences on forest protection, forest tourism and recreation industry, and green ecological industry development will be held. This will help innovate forest protection and explore a development path to make Zhangjiajie’s lucid waters and lush mountains into invaluable assets.
The festival will include such activities as a huge scroll unveiling ceremony, Tianmen Mountain international speed stair-climbing competition, forest tourism and healthcare summit forum, national nature reserve construction and management training class and on-site teaching seminar, innovative and creative bonsai art invitational exhibition, and study tours on nature.
