GYBN Policy Work on the
Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework

Learn more about GYBN policy work for the new Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework.

As the governments of the world are coming together to negotiate under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) to agree on a post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF), youth have rallied together to gather our voices and forge a path of reconnection and reconciliation with nature for a just and sustainable future.


Through wide consultations with our community, the Global Youth Biodiversity Network (GYBN) is articulating our demands and priorities to address biodiversity loss–through policies and action on the ground. As the international coordination platform for youth participation in the CBD, GYBN is calling for a just, implementable, and impactful post-2020 global biodiversity framework. This means that the GBF must reflect the actions and enabling conditions needed for genuine transformative change, addressing the root causes of biodiversity loss and putting equity for nature and all people at the center.
