Destination 2030


What is it?

The policy booklet “Destination 2030”, outlines current problems in the biodiversity realm, analyzes existing strategies to address them, and introduces the youth perspective on these issues as well as our proposed concrete actions. GYBN Europe decided to focus on 10 key themes:

-> freshwater,

-> agriculture,

-> nature-based solutions,

-> ecosystem restoration,

-> urban biodiversity,

-> renewable energy,

-> education,

-> gender,

-> international trade, and

-> economy and finance.


These briefs mirror the EU Biodiversity Strategy to 2030, as this will be the focus for the environmental sector in Europe for the upcoming decade. The compilation of briefs further reflects GYBN Europe’s vision for how to incorporate intergenerational equity across the environmental sector in Europe.
