#StopTheSame

TO LIVE IN HARMONY WITH(IN) NATURE

In December 2022, the second part of the 15th Conference of the Parties of the Convention on Biological Diversity will be held, deciding on a new worldwide strategy to stop biodiversity loss: the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework

After 3 years of consultations with youth from over 100 countries, our network agreed on one thing: we need a framework that leaves no one behind. We are commited to push for an ambitious framework that is based on rights and equity.

WHY YOUTH?

 
Background 1920x1080px Square.png

"Our generation has seen many of the promises of the Millennium Development Goals, the Aichi Biodiversity Targets, and the Kyoto Protocol fail.​"

"We need real transformative change - for humankind to realign priorities, values, behaviours, and actions. We have the creativity, will and energy to reinvent our systems, equitably and sustainably."

"But for our generation to have hope for a future built on peace and harmony with nature, we need unprecedent action."

OUR ACTION ROADMAP

Together with many partners, GYBN is following this line of action to build a Global Youth Biodiversity Movement for our future with nature:
