Biodiversity needs all of us

The Countdown 2010 initiative was closed in 2010. This website and all information it contains may not be up to date.

The Countdown 2010 Secretariat has gathered hundreds of biodiversity messages from people all over the world during 2010 – the International Year of Biodiversity. All the cards have been put together in large photo mosaics which you can find below and which was displayed at the 10th Conference of the Parties in Nagoya, Japan in October 2010.

Biodiversity needs all of us and we all need biodiversity. People were asked to write their personal message on what biodiversity means to them and how to save it. Cards were collected from partners, participants at the European Commission’s Green Week 2010, and the website.
