The Secretariat of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity has announced that it will invite Parties to the Convention to participate in the 25th anniversary by, among other activities, organizing and hosting local celebrations on 22 May 2018, the International Day for Biological Diversity (IDB). In line with the above, the Secretariat has announced that this year’s IDB theme will be: "Celebrating 25 Years of Action for Biodiversity".

The theme was chosen to mark the 25th anniversary of the entry into force of the Convention on Biological Diversity and to highlight progress made in the achievement of its objectives at the national and global levels.

The CBD Secretariat encourages all Parties to the Convention and all organizations that deal in some way with the issue to organize activities and events to celebrate the IDB and to take advantage of it to raise public awareness and to showcase their work and success stories from the last 25 years.

Please share your IDB celebrations by registering your activities on the website of the United Nations Decade on Biodiversity
