[World] Monthly Event for May 2020

by Eco Generation | 29-04-2020 10:28

Happy Early International Day for Biological Diversity!



May 22nd marks the International Day for Biological Diversity designated by the United Nations.


Biodiversity, which is known to be the variety of life on Earth, is very important for it provides food, shelter, medicinal resources, as well as other numerous social benefits. Despite the accelerating advances in technology, we are still dependent on these healthy ecosystem to survive.



This leads us to this year's theme, "Our solutions are in nature"  our answers can only be found in nature and it is our utmost priority to preserve it.              


In recognition of the International Day for Biological Diversity, the United Nations had set 4 days leading up to May 22nd with different themes, each day representing each box in the main logo with meanings which follows:



Through science and traditional knowledge, we can understand what is causing the loss of biodiversity and find possible solutions to prevent it from happening in the future.



After we understand the causes, our next step is to take action - let us raise awareness on the protected areas which act as habitats for animals.



Another important benefit that we obtain from biodiversity is that it provides us with food and medicine. Did you know that pollinators affect 35 percent of global agricultural land?



Indigenous people and local communities also play a pivotal role when it comes to sustainable of biodiversity.
