Monaco dates the natural well-being to celebrate the International Day of Forests.

Forests are one of the most precious terrestrial areas in terms of biodiversity, hosting more than 80% of fauna and flora, including insects whose role is essential for any ecosystem. Those concentrations of green plants represent about 30% of the Planet Earth's surface acting as natural filters to ensure clean water and clean air while preventing the worst effects of climate change. Thus, on the 21st March each year the United Nations proclaimed the International Day of Forests. The chance to reflect and to look more respectfully at the environment around us. In view to celebrate trees and their connections with all living beings, the Office National des Forêts - ONF (National Forests Office) is organizing, in partnership with the Principality of Monaco and the Municipality of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, a free animation on the theme: "Bonne santé et bien-être" (“Good health and well-being”). This partnership has been working since 1986 to be ready against every emergency but also to convey meaningful messages. On the 18th March 2023, anyone interested can book online an immersive path in contact with the French Riviera's forest.
