Sustainable development:
Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

About the logo
The logo uses the colours of the UN DPI campaign for the post-2015 development agenda, and also employs the “handprint” concept, which has been increasingly used to express a positive vision of action in support of sustainable development. The dark green colour represents biodiversity (same green as the CBD logo), and the other colours represent the 3 dimensions of sustainable development: economic, social and environmental. The hands are those of present and future generations, and they are also the hands that will bring positive change to our planet.

Logo of the International Day for Biological Diversity 2015
