The Kenyan Youth Biodiversity Network (KYBN) is a certified chapter of the Global Youth Biodiversity Network (GYBN), an international network of youth organizations and individuals from all over the world whose common goal is to prevent the loss of biodiversity. KYBN is officially registered and operates under the laws of the Republic of Kenya.

On more information on KYBN, its activities, and mandate, please visit our website:

GYBN aims to represent the voice of global youth in the negotiations under the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), raise awareness among young people of the values of biodiversity and connect individuals and youth organizations in order to build a global coalition to halt the loss of biodiversity. We are committed to bringing the opinions and positions of young people into the political arena, empowering young people to take action. GYBN seeks to inspire global youth and future leaders to work for sustainable use and conservation of biodiversity for a healthy environment and society.
In order to achieve our common goal, GYBN also engages with young people on the ground. We have several regional and national chapters where young people can actively get involved in on the ground conservation work as well as political processes on the national and regional level.
