Why an International Day for Biological Diversity? While there is a growing recognition that biological diversity is a global asset of tremendous value to present and future generations, the number of species is being significantly reduced by certain human activities.

The Convention on Biological Diversity is the international legal instrument for "the conservation of biological diversity, the sustainable use of its components and the fair and equitable sharing of the benefits arising out of the utilization of genetic resources" that has been ratified by 196 nations.

Please note that the guided tours and the talks are in Swedish.

Date: 22 May
Venue: Bergius Botanic Garden
Admission is free to all the activities. Entrance fee to the conservatories.
