Biodiversity Day 2021 - Activities

There are many fun ways to take part in Biodiversity Day!

As the world continues to grapple with the pandemic, Biodiversity Day is once again celebrated virtually. We encourage you to organize digital activities and events to celebrate Biodiversity Day. Take advantage of this opportunity to raise public awareness and to show that you are "part of the solution"!

If you are an individual, you can also organize an activity yourself in your community or even at national level. Every person can make a difference!

You are in the best position to know what awareness-raising campaigns and calls to action work at your national level, but here are some ideas for activities anyone can do virtually, individually, and more.


Send in a message

We are soliciting videos and written statements on the theme “We're part of the solution".


Coordinate Biodiversity Day in your country

Put together a committee or network to prepare for Biodiversity Day celebrations.

One person can make a difference! For inspiration, take a look at the video below. Kudos to Rebecka Le Moine! Thanks to Rebecka's work, today Biodiversity Day has a dedicated website in Sweden.


Reach out to new audiences

Contact your local media to ensure coverage of Biodiversity Day and days leading to it.

Expand your networks to new partners that are not closely related to the environment and show how biodiversity fits into their lives and their work.
