About the World Wood Day

On World Wood Day some 400 people from up to 150 countries come together – for example, artists, craftsmen and scientists. For the host country, this is a chance to present the significance of the raw material wood, as well as the domestic forestry and timber industry. Not least of all, the high number of international guests makes it possible to learn about the fascinating world of wood usage as practised by other cultures. At the same time, the event provides an important boost for tourism and business in the region. Under the motto CHANGE, the World Wood Day 2019 shows that the challenges of an increasingly changing world can be overcome in the long term by intertwining tradition and innovation.

In 2019, the World Wood Day 2019 will be organised in Austria for the first time by the World Wood Day Foundation in association with the Austrian Open-Air Museum in Stübing, and the Institute for Wood Technology and Renewable Raw Materials at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna. The project is concluded with a presentation of works, including concerts in the Stefaniesaal in Graz.
