The World Wood Day 2020 Organizing Committee has been closely monitoring the epidemic situation of the Coronavirus.  With the increasing number of confirmed cases in the Asia-Pacific area, we are deeply concerned for the health and welfare of all WWD participants and the general public while traveling and during the event.  The World Wood Day 2020 Organizing Committee has reached a very difficult decision to cancel the World Wood Day 2020 event in Tokyo, Japan.

We greatly appreciate your interest and support for the World Wood Day event and we understand calling off the event is a disappointing news.  However, World Wood Day is about who you celebrate with and how you can contribute to the world meaningfully.  We encourage you to celebrate World Wood Day locally in your own way and hope to hear from you again in the future.

Thank you for your understanding.

World Wood Day (WWD) 2020 will celebrate its 8th annual event with the theme LEGACY at the Tokyo Ryutsu Center on March 17th - 19th and Bunkyo Civic Center on March 20th - 22nd in Tokyo, Japan.  WWD is a multicultural and multifaceted approach to promote wood as a good eco-friendly material.  This year will explore legacies of wood use, rooted in tradition and culture, and what it means for the future.  Participants and public alike will be able to exchange and experience a diverse array of wood culture tied to legacy that will guide them to better contribute towards a sustainable future.  Do not miss a spectacular opportunity to learn about the past by discovering and experiencing a marvelous variety of wood legacies in Japan and the world.
