International Day for Biological Diversity
May 22 All day
Building a shared future for all life
The Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity is pleased to announce the Biodiversity Day 2022 slogan: “Building a shared future for all life”.
Biodiversity remains the answer to several sustainable development challenges. From nature-based solutions to climate, health issues, food and water security, and sustainable livelihoods, biodiversity is the foundation upon which we can build back better.
What can I do?
Wave of Solidarity
The international community is counting the days before the adoption of a new global biodiversity framework, based on negotiations that are taking place leading up to the UN Biodiversity Conference #COP15. Every remaining day before the UN Biodiversity Conference counts to make your voice heard loud and clear: Let the world know that you wish for a strong global biodiversity framework that will “bend the curve” on biodiversity loss. Let the world know that you care about your future!
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
Actions for Biodiversity
Lists of 22 actions for biodiversity will be released gradually for various audiences to inspire action for nature. The actions are aligned with the new global biodiversity framework. You are called to:
- Adopt any of the 22 actions or propose your own actions or lists
- Share photos/videos of your action(s) on social media with the hashtag #BiodiversityDay (available in other languages)
In the run-up to 22 May, the campaign will showcase these actions taking place around the world.
