'We're Part of the Solution'
Tomorrow (May 22nd) is International Day for Biological Diversity.
As the global community is called to re-examine our relationship to the natural world, one thing remains certain.
Despite all our technological advances we are completely dependent on healthy and vibrant ecosystems. For our water, food, medicines, clothes, fuel, shelter and energy, just to name a few.
For 2021 the theme is “We’re part of the Solution”. The slogan was chosen to be a continuation of the momentum generated last year under the over-arching theme, “Our solutions are in nature”, which served as a reminder that biodiversity remains the answer to several sustainable development challenges.
From nature-based solutions to climate, health issues, food & water security, and sustainable livelihoods, biodiversity is the foundation upon which we can build back better. That is the main message from the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), a key international instrument for sustainable development.
