UN Decade on Biodiversity
What could spark our imagination more than the creativity and play of nature around us? So many shapes and colours… so infinitely numerous kinds of plants… and so many of them possessing magical powers: they heal, they nourish, they improve the soil in which they grow and the air we breathe, they form communities with other plants or just simply make us happy by their beauty or scent. I would not want to live in a world without this diversity, without the wonders of sowing, growing, blooming, without the green, breathing coat they wrap us in.
We must do everything to conserve them. Otherwise, someday we will have to imagine and remember those wonders … and someday even that will be gone, because our imagination will be no longer nourished by nature's diversity.
