A song about forests have been composed for ENO Conference 2011 and the International Year of Forests. The song is about the importance of forests and global action. This song will be out later this year and performed in the opening ceremonies of Act Now conference 15-16 September, in the city of Joensuu, Finland.

Act Now - Forests For Future

Feel it in the air
Remember what's been told:
A third of the ground out there
Is our greenest gold.
Don't waste it, show you care
So that people everywhere
Understand and see
Our forest from the trees

You need to act now
Plant it in your heart
The simple fact of how
We can do our part
For future generations.
Step up and make a vow,
Cause forest matters,
Our time is now.

They are homes for plenty
Of species in the Earth,
A livelihood to many,
Of so much they are worth.
Use wisely what's been given
And give back what you owe.
We need them for our living
We want our forest to grow.

You need to act now
Plant it in your heart
The simple fact of how
We can do our part
For future generations.
Step up and make a vow,
Cause forest matters,
Our time is now.

You need to act now
Plant it in your heart
The simple fact of how
We can do our part
For future generations.
Step up and make a vow,
Cause forest matters,
Our time is now.
Cause forest matters,
Our time is now.
