Hosted by: Convention for Biological Diversity

With the aim of highlighting the importance of biodiversity for many sustainable development issues, this year’s slogan for the International Day for Biological Diversity, celebrated each year on 22 May, is “Building a Shared Future for all Life.” 

he slogan was chosen to build on the momentum generated in 2020 and 2021 in support of the post-2020 global biodiversity framework, to be adopted at the upcoming UN Biodiversity Conference (COP 15). The slogan is action oriented and fits within the context of the ongoing United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, which highlights that biodiversity is the answer to several sustainable development challenges. From nature-based solutions and/or ecosystems-based approaches to climate, health issues, food and water security and sustainable livelihoods, biodiversity is the foundation upon which we can build back better.

Anyone can organize activities! Given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Biodiversity Day 2022 will be commemorated mainly online. You are in the best position to know what awareness-raising campaigns and calls to action are feasible at your national level
