Biodiversity, reconciling with the living

Biodiversity is the living fabric of our planet. It is vital to transform our behaviors and values to halt and reverse its decline. Ahead of the COP15 in December, UNESCO seeks to harness the full power of education, science, culture and information to mobilize for the planet and make peace with nature.

What will it take to restore harmony with nature?

There's a connection between all living things built and strengthened over billions of years.
This is biodiversity Our Lives depend on it and today biodiversity depends on us.
We must unite to protect restore and Preserve,  we must bring out the best of who we are as human beings.
By #SharingHumanity, we can create solutions to protect biodiversity. As #COP15 is underway, it’s time to have your say #ForNature

Bring out the best in our shared humanity

Since wars begin in the minds of men and women, it is in the minds of men and women that peace must be built.

UNESCO uses education, science, culture, communication and information to foster mutual understanding and respect for our planet. We work to strengthen the intellectual and moral solidarity of humankind. We bring people together around the conviction of our shared humanity.
