Session 7.4

'Lights Off: A Call for Action'

In this session, the youth advocacy group Biodiversity Action Europe (BAE) will present the Call for Action for a biodiverse planet, refreshing the audience with a unique synesthetic experience. The Call for Action points out the most pressing issues regarding biodiversity in the eyes of European youth, asking for a different kind of commitment and culture. Not only are humans part of nature, but nature itself enables our existence in the world by providing clean air, food, resources for shelter, amenity and regulating our environment. If you need a breath of fresh air, join Biodiversity Action Europe for an unforgettable experience. This last day of the EU Green Week will inspire you to change the world!
