International Day for Biological Diversity

International Day for Biological Diversity 
 2022 Theme 
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”.

• “Building a Shared Future for all Life,” highlights biodiversity is the foundation upon which we can build back better
• Slogan conveys biodiversity, from ecosystem-based approaches to climate and/or nature-based solutions to climate, health, food/water security, and sustainable livelihoods is the answer to many sustainable development challenges
• Slogan builds on momentum generated over the past two years in support of the post-2020 global biodiversity framework to be adopted later this year in Kunming, China.

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.

“From individual species through entire ecosystems, biological diversity is vital for human health and well-being. The quality of the water we drink, the food we eat, and the air we breathe all depend on keeping the natural world in good health.”

- António Guterres, United Nations Secretary-General
