Putting Nature at the Center

21 May 2020 | by YSLMEP
As 2020 unfolds, the world begins to see that this is no ordinary year. It has been 20 years since the world first celebrated the International Day of Biodiversity (IDB) – a day that appreciates the total variety of life on Earth and reviews our global commitments for its protection, conservation and sustainable use. This comes at an opportune time for everyone to rethink our ways to treat nature and biodiversity and recalibrate our approach for the sake of our health and perpetual prosperity, not only to overcome the ongoing global pandemic, but also to arrive at solutions that are centered on nature and biodiversity as the key basis for our sustainable future.
