General Assembly Eleventh Interactive Dialogue on Harmony with Nature to Commemorate International Mother Earth. This year, the Interactive Dialogue on Harmony with Nature will be convened under the theme "Harmony with Nature and Biodiversity: Ecological economics and Earth-centered law".
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development envisions a world in which humanity lives in harmony with nature, and in which wildlife and other living species are protected. However, unsustainable economic systems have endangered all forms of life, human and non-human – exemplified in the steep loss of biodiversity from terrestrial to aquatic ecosystems, and the climate crisis approaching a point of no return. A reversal of the current path demands nothing less than a paradigm shift.
This interactive dialogue will discuss the relationship between harmony with nature and the protection of biological diversity, with the aim to inspire citizens and societies to reconsider how they interact with the natural world in the context of sustainable development.
