Biodiversity Dialogues

Young People
21 - 23 May 2024

The International Day for Biological Diversity is celebrated each year on 22 May to spotlight the importance of biodiversity in maintaining the health of our planet and the well-being of its inhabitants. Established by the United Nations, it is a day where people worldwide are encouraged to take action to conserve biodiversity and understand the integral role it plays in our lives.

About Dialogues on Biodiversity

On the occasion of the International Day for Biological Diversity, we invite young people to engage in Generation Global's video conferences focused on our latest topic, Biodiversity. Participants will discuss the significance of biodiversity conservation, share insights into the biodiversity of their local environments, and explore measures to protect and enhance it. These 60-minute virtual dialogues will be guided by Generation Global's skilled facilitators.

Certificate of Participation

All participants who actively engage in a video conference and provide their concluding reflections will be awarded a certificate for their involvement in the Biodiversity Dialogues.

“I learnt about the different ways students have been trying to act on this issue of climate change - the students from Israel were really creative, they shared about how their school incentivised students to recycle, how they had recycling activities, medicine recycling programs and more. The students from India were really creative, they even came up with their own song to sing while recycling. As of far, I haven't taken any action yet, but I sure got a lot of inspiration from other students sharing their ideas.”
