About GYBN

The Global Youth Biodiversity Network (GYBN) is an international network of 550 youth organizations, representing more than 1,23M youth from 172 countries whose common goal is to prevent the loss of biodiversity. 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.

As the official coordination platform for youth participation in the negotiations under the CBD, GYBN is committed to bringing the opinions and positions of young people into the political process, empowering young people to take action. Recognized and supported by the CBD Secretariat, GYBN seeks to inspire global youth and future leaders to work for the sustainable use and conservation of biodiversity for a healthy environment and society.

GYBN was created as the result of an international initiative by young people who participated in CBD COP10 in 2010, and was officially established in 2012.

The network is coordinated by an international steering committee and is entirely run by young people for young people.
