Forests of youth and Children’s Union

March 22, 2023

In thick green forests of the DPRK it is a commonplace to see those with catchwords “youth forest” and “Children’s Union forest” put up in large letters in them. 

They are literally the forests tended by members of the Socialist Patriotic Youth League and the Korean Children’s Union.

Families and schools encourage the younger generation to plant and tend trees in mountains around their villages and schools from their childhood.

They grow in mind along with the growth of trees. 

They come to get attached to their native place and then realize the preciousness of the country through their sincere work and devotion, not through words or writing.  

The forests of youth and the Children’s Union also took a large share in the all-people efforts for afforestation to turn all mountains across the country into useful gold and treasure ones.
