The Global Youth Biodiversity Network (GYBN) is an international network of youth organizations and individuals from across the world whose common goal is to prevent the loss of biodiversity. GYBN aims to represent the voice of global youth in the negotiations under the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (UN CBD), raise awareness among young people of the values of biodiversity, and connects individuals and youth organizations in order to build a global coalition to halt the loss of biodiversity. As the official major group for youth in the negotiations under the CBD, GYBN is committed to bringing the opinions and positions of young people into the political process; empowering young people to take action. Recognized and supported by the UN CBD Secretariat, GYBN seeks to inspire global youth and future leaders to work for the sustainable use and conservation of biodiversity for a healthy environment and society.
During our consultation meeting held in Lake Nakuru National Park on 26th -27th October 2019, the need for a community sensitization event and clean around and inside the park was underlined. In recognition of your great efforts to conserve our national heritage and the need for the sustainability of this biodiversity hub, we have identified Nakuru County as one of the key partners in the planned clean up and tree growing.
The event is proposed to take place on 25th January 2020 at Lake Nakuru National Park, from 8:00 AM and we are expecting 300 participants. In this regards, we are hopeful that you will join us in this noble exercise aimed at enhancing the pristine nature of the park and sensitizing the communities around on the need to protect our natural heritage from pollution.
