Community Outreach - Thematic Exhibition
"Fantastic Forests - Embracing the Vitality of Trees"
- An Exhibition of Nature and Culture
1. Nature / Objectives
As awareness of the importance of nature conservation has grown, trees have become a natural symbol for the protection and preservation of living things. Yet long before our current day awareness about the need for conservation, trees were an integral part of eco-systems, human life and culture, even though this was often under-appreciated.
In this exhibition, we will explore the intricate relationship between nature, humankind and trees. In their unique way, trees have long supported the development of our society, ancient and modern cultures, myths and legends, and supported our human as well as millions of animal lives in countless practical ways. Without trees, we and more than half of the biological species on the planet will no longer exist. We aim to help you reconnect with our primal and instinctive relationship with trees, and appreciate their beauty and mystical aura.
