Time for reconciliation:
SUPER YEARS FOR NATURE
2020 and 2021 are crucial years for the future of life on Earth: All the governments of the world are coming together to negotiate under the Convention on Biological Diversity to agree on a Global Biodiversity Framework that will provide political guidelines and commitments for everyone:
Governments, corporations, institutions, civil society to mobilize their communities and galvanize action for biodiversity.
Path of reconciliation with nature for a just, sustainable future!
GYBN is calling on all young people
TO RALLY FOR BIODIVERSITY!
Let's bring our voices, hearts and actions together in a global movement to push world leaders to raise up their commitments and actions to make an equitable and sustainable future, real!
Share our ideas
Advocate for our priorities
Understand deeper & empathize
Mobilize & get active
"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."
Youth wants Real Transformative Change. These are our advocacy priorities coming from extensive consultation done with our community:
Integrity of our life support system
Equity for people and nature
Intergenerational Equity & Full and Effective Participation of Youth
Human rights & the rights of nature

Recognized and supported by the CBD Secretariat, GYBN represents the voice of global youth in the negotiations under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), raises awareness among young people of the values of biodiversity, and connects individuals and youth organizations in order to build a global coalition to halt the loss of biodiversity.
The network is coordinated by an international steering committee and is entirely run by young people for young people.
