Voices of Nature is an online campaign promoting the inextricable connection between wildlife and people. On this website you will find content that sheds light on the work conducted by individuals and organisations alike for the benefit of nature and human wellbeing.

What is the campaign about?

Nature alone cannot express its needs and preferences, nor have a say regarding the decisions that affect it. That is why us humans have to raise our voices on its behalf.

Voices of Nature is a campaign that showcases examples of how different parts of society can come together and speak up for the benefit of nature and biodiversity. On this website you can find success stories in which people and organisations around Europe have achieved change to protect nature via the means of democratic participation. We will publish new content on the website on a regular basis.

Why do we need #VoicesOfNature?

Wildlife and people share the same spaces and resources: our futures are entwined. To guarantee human health and quality of life we must preserve a healthy biodiversity and the stable ecosystems that us — all living creatures — rely upon.

Human rights and democracy are pillars of nature conservation. Through the protection of our rich natural heritage, we safeguard basic human rights, including rights to life, health, food, livelihood, water, housing and culture. By engaging multiple sectors of society in nature conservation and listening to all concerned parties, we strengthen democratic participation.

Let’s stand up for these values, for wildlife and for people. Listen to the #VoicesOfNature!

Bern Convention

The Bern Convention is an important treaty for the conservation of nature in Europe. It was established by the Council of Europe in 1982, and has been signed by 50 countries that are committed to protect both species and habitats. One of our main concerns is the fight against invasive alien species, which are an increasing threat to European biodiversity. We invite you to follow the Voices of nature campaign and amplify its message on social media!

In the video below, Matjaž Gruden, Director of Democratic Participation at the Council of Europe, explains the importance of the Bern Convention as an instrument for democratic participation.
