The Korea-Indonesia Forest Cooperation Center (KIFC) is an inter-government organization established by the Korea Forest Service (KFS) and the Indonesian Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK) with the main task of facilitating and strengthening forestry cooperation between Korea and Indonesia. The involvement of the young generation in the forestry sector, as well as efforts to mitigate climate change through forest ecosystem restoration to ensure its sustainability in the future, is one of the priority scopes of cooperation between the two countries.
KIFC held a poster design competition, as one of a series of activities to commemorate the International Day of Forests 2022, as well as to support the implementation of the XV World Forestry Congress (WFC) in Korea and the G20 Presidency of Indonesia. Furthermore, KIFC invites all communities, especially the young generation, to participate in this poster design competition.
With the theme “Sustainable Forests and the Future”, we’d like to encourage the public to submit their best creativity through poster design that conveys a message about the importance of sustainable forests and the future of life. We divided the participant into two categories based on sub-themes. In less than a month, we’ve received 1,936 submitted posters from 1,346 participants with the following details:
- Forests for Life ( 1,365 submitted posters )
- Sustainable Peatland and/or Mangrove for the Future ( 571 submitted posters )
The top three winners were selected directly by the judging team, while the favorite winners were selected based on the public votes via Instagram. The judging team consisted of representatives from International Cooperation Bureau (MoEF), Public Relations Bureau (MoEF), and Korea-Indonesia Forest Cooperation Center (KIFC).
