Biodiversity Day 2021- Submit Messages

Send in messages in support of biodiversity!

The Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity is soliciting short videos and written messages 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.

Everyone is invited to post their messages on their own social media platforms with the hashtags #BiodiversityDay, #COP15 and #ForNature (multilingual hashtags are available). Please share these messages with us (you may tag us @UNBiodiversity). Due to the volume of messages received, we may not be able to share all messages, we apologize in advance.

The plan is to roll these messages 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.

Below, you will find guidelines for Governments and key figures in environmental sustainability, as well as guidelines for organizations and individuals.

 

Guidelines for messages from Governments and key figures in environmental sustainability

Governments and key leaders in environmental sustainability are invited to make videos or written statements for Biodiversity Day. Messages could...

  • build public interest and support for a robust new Global Biodiversity Framework.
  • show what it means to you or your organization to be part of the solution.
  • create affection for biodiversity and for the word itself.
  • emphasize hope and the importance of working together at all levels to build a future of life in harmony with nature. Biodiversity is the foundation upon which we can build back better.

Videos should be less than 1 min. They can be submitted preferably as files, but also as links to video-sharing platforms.

Written statements should be less than 400 words and, if possible, include a photo of the person making the statement (Word or PDF format).

Messages from government officials should be emailed to secretariat@cbd.int for processing.

Once processed, the messages will appear on the messages page.
