This letter outlines youth’s needs from the international community in pursuing biodiversity and restoration targets for meeting the post-2020 biodiversity goals, achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and realizing the CBD’s 2050 Vision of “Living in Harmony with Nature”. A special youth delegation to the GLF Biodiversity Digital Conference, representing 26 youth organizations engaging in sustainable landscapes and biodiversity topics, co-wrote this letter, whose powerful calls to action preface the biodiversity policy recommendations report.
