International Forum of Trees

Raising a forest- Plant water

April 12 to 15, 2024

Marrakech - Morocco

Mohammed VI Museum

for the civilization of water in Morocco

In collaboration with Cadi Ayyad University from Marrakech,

Faculty of Sciences Semlalia from Marrakech,

association Ibn Al Baytar and Averroes Foundation.

The water and the tree are more than indispensable to the biological and social life of human populations: they have spiritual value. We find the spiritual dimension of water and trees in most of the traditions and religions of our planet.

Water and trees are at the crossroads of sciences and traditions and can bring together humans of all cultures.

Trees and forests hold solutions for the world of tomorrow. They show us how to create wealth and life instead of exploiting it.

The large-scale forest is self-sufficient in water and food. The tree cannot fetch water: it makes it come to itself.
