World Peatlands Day 2023

World Peatlands Day is celebrated on the 2nd of June each year.

  • Launched by the International Peatland Society (IPS) in autumn 2019.
  • Correlates with the date when the draft constitution of the IPS was adopted at an international symposium in Aberdeen in 1967.
  • Allows access not only to temperate and tropical, but also boreal peatlands.
  • Great chance for outdoor activities on pristine bogs and production areas which are possibly under a snow cover or not accessible in winter.
  • Includes aspects of biodiversity, climate, horticulture and many other topics.
