Musicians for Biodiversity is a Non-profit organization that is dedicated to promoting awareness of Biodiversity and Biodiversity loss. Musicians have always led the way when it comes to bringing important matters to the attention of the public. The United Nations has designated the years 2011-2020 as the Decade on Biodiversity.
Our purpose and goal Our goal is to make people aware that Biodiversity is the web of life that connects us to all the different forms of life that are on our planet. We must understand that no matter where we live or what our culture is, the loss of biodiversity can affect how well we live and function on this planet.
We also need to make people aware of how biodiversity is related to and connected to other environmental issues such as Climate Change, which is the number one threat to Biodiversity.
Our Partnership with the United Nations The goal of the United Nations Decade on Biodiversity is to support the implementation of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity and to promote its overall vision of living in harmony with nature. We became official partners with the UN on this effort in 2013.
To help support these goals, from time to time we invite officials from the UN to be a guest on our internet radio broadcast “From the Top” Over the past few years. we have had the pleasure of interviewing Mr.David Ainsworth, the Information Officer and the Executive Secretary of the Convention on Biological Diversity, Dr Braulio Dias (now former Executive Secretary) on our show several times.
We also keep up to date with the progress that is being made throughout the world on this ambitious project undertaken by the United Nations.
