CBD COP9 – Bonn 2008

As a highlight of the conference, representatives of the participants had the chance to present a youth declaration during the official opening ceremony of the 2008 UN Biodiversity Summit. Using a self-made balance, they called upon the 6,400 delegates and ministers at COP9 to bring nature and ecosystems back into balance. Among others they urged delegates to include biological diversity issues in the curricula of all schools. It was one of the very first times that young people were given the floor during a CBD COP.
