THEME 2020

BIODIVERSITY

One million of planet Earth’s eight million different species are threatened with extinction. This fact also jeopardizes humanity’s own survival as a species.

Despite scientists’ insight that the biodiversity of the Earth is crucial for our existence, the issue tends to fall between decision makers’ areas of responsibility and does not receive the same attention as, for example, climate change.

The issue of biodiversity is complex and has a bearing on a very wide range of conditions for life on Earth – everything from clean water, raw materials and food production to genetic variation, inspiration for technical solutions and cures for diseases. The multifaceted and intractable nature of the significance of biodiversity must not contribute to an inability to act. We need solutions and initiatives in many areas to achieve Global Objectives numbers 14 and 15, which address ecosystems in the oceans and on land.

The jury for the WIN WIN Gothenburg Sustainability Award seeks out individuals and organizations that have helped bring attention to and/or achieved improvements in biodiversity – locally, regionally or globally. It is an advantage if contributions are scalable and inspire further use in other fields or in other geographical locations.
