Oct 24, 2023 | Events

Promote Pollinators is looking forward to hosting an online event on December 8th at 15:00 CEST. The free webinar will focus on Pollinators in the urban environment.

The webinar aims to share knowledge on the relevance of pollinators in the urban environment and to showcase examples of urban pollinator policies and initiatives. We want to enhance attention with other cities and city-influencers and identify facilitators that help cities to develop and implement pollinators strategies. The webinar will last about 2 hours and will be divided into two parts: presentations and panel discussions between experts.



The presentations about pollinators in the urban environment will be held by various experts.

  1. State of the art science
    • Katherine Baldock (Nortumbria University)
  2. The national perspective
    • Mexico, Sol Ortiz Garcia (Mexican Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development)
  3. What is happening in cities?
    • Montreal – Michel St-Germain (Montreal Insectarium Museum)
    • Tallinn – Meelis Uustal (Tallinn City Government)
    • Nairobi – Wanja Kinuthia
  4.  The Bee City and Bee Campus USA Initiatives
    • Mace Vaughan (Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation)

Panel discussion

The presentations will be followed by panel discussions. Leading questions:

  • what are critical success factors for good urban pollinator initiatives?
  • (how) can urban pollinator initiatives contribute to science and awareness?
  • how can other governmental levels support the development of urban pollinator initiatives?
