World Bamboo Day (WBD)

World Bamboo Day (WBD) is a day of celebration to increase the awareness of bamboo globally. Where bamboo grows naturally, bamboo has been a daily element, but its utilization has not always been sustainable due to exploitation.

The World Bamboo Organization (WBO) aims to bring the potential of bamboo to a more elevated exposure – to protect natural resources and the environment, to ensure sustainable utilization, to promote new cultivation of bamboo for new industries in regions around the world, as well as promote traditional uses locally for community economic development.

Our 1st celebration of World Bamboo Day (WBD) was held here for the very first time in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, from 18-23 September 2012!

Together with our strategic partner, Malaysian Timber Industry Board (MTIB), Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM), Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) with the support of 1 Mont Kiara Shopping Mall and Bamboo Malaysia Sdn Bhd and other participating organizations, our purpose is to promote the bamboo industry to our fellow Malaysians and expatriates living within the vicinity.
