International Day for Biological Diversity 2022 — Building a Shared Future for All Life

Date: 20 May, 2022 (17:00-19:00 JST)
Location: Online

This symposium will celebrate International Day for Biological Diversity 2022, building momentum and support for the post-2020 global biodiversity framework to be adopted at the upcoming UN Biodiversity Conference. Biodiversity remains the answer to many 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.

Focusing on the theme “building a shared future for all life”, the symposium will explore trends at the global level and within Japan, discussing how to accelerate and link local action with the international policy agenda. Speakers will present case studies and the outcomes of initiatives in local communities, as well as youth action in the field of biodiversity conservation and ecosystem restoration.

The symposium is organised by UNU-IAS, the Ministry of the Environment of Japan (MOEJ) and the Global Environment Outreach Centre (GEOC), and supported by the Japan Conference for 2030 Global Biodiversity Framework (J-GBF).
