This groundbreaking event, in partnership with the World Scout Movement, was held during the World Scouting annual JOTA-JOTI event, spanning three days from October 20th to 22nd. Its primary aim was to raise awareness about the critical issue of deforestation and inspire young people to become active advocates in the fight against forest degradation while engaging with global citizens. Following this, the Metaforest was opened to the public.
