Dangers of climate change
The design of the special postage stamp “Gefahren des Klimawandels – Wald ist Klimaschutz” (Dangers of climate change – Forests are climate protection) visualises the danger of forest fires at a typographical level. Forests worldwide are being threatened and destroyed more and more all the time due to increasing drought, heat or slash-and-burn land clearance. At a second level, the significance of the forest for climate protection as a reservoir for CO2 and of sustainable forest management with the generation of the renewable raw material wood is emphasised by the photograph of a healthy, green spruce forest. The design uses the special colour Pantone 804 C.
