The International Day for Biological Diversity is an international day sanctioned by the United Nations for the promotion of biodiversity issues. It is held on May 22.

Biodiversity is the foundation of everything, be it climate, health, energy, science and technology, water and so on and let's face it, it's far from perfect. So we need to focus on solving issues related to biodiversity like land degradation, drought, climate change and many other such things because if the foundation is strong, everything will be okay.

The International Day for Biological Diversity is extremely important because it raises awareness about the importance of protecting biological resources and the global diversity that shapes our environment. This doesn't only mean the various species of plants, animals and microorganisms around us but it also includes the genetic diversity of each of them as well as the great variety of ecosystems that make up our planet.

This year the theme is "We're part of the solution"

The purpose for choosing this particular theme is to remind humanity and instill in the minds of people that "We're part of the solution", that the answer lies within us and that without the commitment of every single human being, restoring the balance of our ecosystems will not be possible. It is upto us. There is a famous quote, "Be the change you want to see." Let us finally apply it and change the world for the better so that future generations can live in a stable, healthy environment.
