Building a shared future for all life

The Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity is pleased to announce the Biodiversity Day 2022 slogan: “Building a shared future for all life”.

The slogan was chosen to continue building momentum and support for the post-2020 global biodiversity framework to be adopted at the upcoming UN Biodiversity Conference #COP15. The slogan is available in the 6 United Nations languages.

Biodiversity remains the answer to several sustainable development challenges. From nature-based solutions to climate, health issues, food and water security, and sustainable livelihoods, biodiversity is the foundation upon which we can build back better.


What can I do?

Wave of Solidarity

The international community is counting the days before the adoption of a new global biodiversity framework, based on negotiations that are taking place leading up to the UN Biodiversity Conference #COP15. Every remaining day before the UN Biodiversity Conference counts to make your voice heard loud and clear: Let the world know that you wish for a strong global biodiversity framework that will “bend the curve” on biodiversity loss. Let the world know that you care about your future!

The Secretariat is soliciting videos and written statements from all regions of the world.



Anyone can join or organize activities! Given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Biodiversity Day 2022 will be commemorated mainly online. You are in the best position to know what awareness-raising campaigns and calls to action are feasible at your national level. See what is happening in your country!
