|The logo and slogan for COP 10 to be held in Nagoya, Japan, 18-29 October 2010.|
Through the ancient Japanese art, the logo reflects the beauty and fragility of biodiversity, as well as the importance of maintaining harmony in the natural world. The depiction of an adult and a child illustrates the need to protect species and ecosystems for future generations.
This logo is a poignant example of how a small symbol or design can be so much more than just a pretty picture; in this case, it is a call-to-action for people around the world to protect our fragile environment while we still can.
