United Nations Biodiversity Conference
COP15 in Montreal
Saturday December 17, 2022
At the 15th Conference of the Parties (COP15) to the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), we were fortunate to hold a side event to present our work on how sustainable engineering solutions, and how our health, both depend on biodiversity, and to distribute our two booklets (see homepage to download PDFs).
Following our presentation, the UNDP demonstrated their support through masterfully producing and distributing stories about our work:
In addition, the global UN News team featured these stories in its summary of the COP-15.
“The time has come to change the trajectory of our planet and, in turn, the future of humankind. We can no longer continue with a 'business as usual' attitude. This December in Montreal, Canada, I challenge every nation and every person to support the adoption of AN AMBITIOUS, REALISTIC AND IMPLEMENTABLE post-2020 global biodiversity framework; our roadmap to a healthy, sustainable future."
Elizabeth Maruma Mrema,
Executive Secretary of the Convention on Biological Diversity
