The Convention on Biodiversity does important work around the world, educating and promoting our natural heritage.  It is important that youth take part in this process. 

Check out the video of the intervention on Invasive Species that was delivered by Swetha (India) in the SBSTTA-18 plenary on June 25 on behalf of the Women’s Caucus and Global Youth Biodiversity Network.

Yesterday Melina (Brazil) delivered the GYBN intervention on Synthetic Biology, expressing their concerns regarding the risk presented by this technology and its products.
“We believe that the use of this technology without any national and international regulatory mechanisms constitutes great risk for the wellbeing of future generations. [...] The precautionary principle is a guiding principle of the convention and it should not be compromised when it comes to synthetic biology.”
