1991France002

22 September 1991, France
10th World Conference of Forestry
design and engrave: P. Lubin

This stamp is celebrating the 10th anniversary of international conference of forest.  I had impression that forest occupies a great part of counrty life of France and people think it has to be managed for future generations, as the words on this stamp suggest.  Not just timbers for industry, but variety of lives and rich produce of food is still very much appreciated, picked and sold in open air markets, which are opened in every towns and cities.

森林資源の世界会議10周年を記念する切手。フランスではあちこちに森があって、それは大切な資源として手入れされています。ハイキングやピクニック、森の中のサイクリングなどのレジャーの場としても、きのこやベリー類の採れる場所、さらには川魚を元気に保つための水の供給源としての森を維持する努力。そして、各都市や街の週末のマルシェ(市場)ではその豊かな実りが、近くの農家で作られる新鮮な野菜と一緒に売り買いされているのです。食のサステナブルのお手本があります。
