As the world continues to grapple with the pandemic, Biodiversity Day 2021 is once again celebrated virtually. With this mind, the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity is soliciting videos and written statements from all regions of the world with the notion in mind that “We’re part of the solution” and we want to know what this means to you.
The plan is to roll these out across the different time zones, thereby emphasizing hope, solidarity and the importance of working together at all levels to build a future of life in harmony with nature.
