The International Day for Biological Diversity is a United Nations initiative for the promotion and creating awareness of biodiversity issues. It is celebrated on May 22 annually. The International Day for Biological Diversity comes within the scope of the UN Post-2015 Development Agenda's Sustainable Development Goals. In this larger initiative of international cooperation, the topic of biodiversity concerns stakeholders in sustainable agriculture; land degradation and drought, desertification, health and sustainable development; water and sanitation; energy; science, knowledge-sharing and capacity-building, technology and innovation; urban resilience and adaptation; climate change and disaster risk reduction; sustainable transport; oceans and seas; forests; vulnerable groups including indigenous peoples; and food security.

In a Rio+20 outcome document, "The World We Want: A Future for All", the critical role of biodiversity in sustainable development was recognized. Netizens took to the social media platform, Twitter to participate in this initiative to create awareness about this day globally.

The theme for International Day for Biological Diversity 2019 is Our Biodiversity, Our Food, Our Health.
