About National Biodiversity Week 2020

National Biodiversity Week is all about connecting people with nature. It’s about communicating the importance of biodiversity and motivating people to play their part in protecting it.

It’s also about entertaining them, showing the fun and wonder that can be found in nature, and inspiring people to learn more, see more, do more.

Our Solutions are in Nature

The theme for International Day for Biological Diversity 2020 is ‘Our Solutions are in Nature ‘

The theme for the day shows that biodiversity remains the answer to a number of sustainable development challenges that we all face. From nature-based solutions to climate, food and water security, and sustainable livelihoods, biodiversity remains the basis for a sustainable future.

With a number of events and activities, 2020 promises to be a “super year” for global biodiversity governance, decision making and ultimately for all life on Earth.
