  • WINNERS of the 2012 World Bamboo Day Contest!

    This year's World Bamboo Day - 18 September - was incredibly celebrated by thousands of people around the globe.  We here at World Bamboo are inspired and amazed by the growth and enthusiasm in which this day is evolving, and look forward with optimism to future celebrations.   This year's contest, sponsored by our friends at EcoPlanet Bamboo, brought a wide array of people together to promote our common mission of promoting awareness and sustainable development of bamboo utilization.  Twenty-nine groups entered as contestants, vying for prize moneys in three categories. We proudly thank all of you out there around the world who celebrated bamboo in honor of World Bamboo Day!  Some of you sat quietly in contemplation under the canopy of bamboo, while others sang and danced.  Some took part in painting competitions, bamboo-shoot cooking competitions, attended lectures and presentations, or planted bamboo to help the environment.
