Promote Pollinators at COP 15
Side event on December 10th
On December 10th, we were part of the side event about Pollinator Protection facilitated by FAO. The side event provided an overview of pollinator-related projects and initiatives that support the implementation of the International Pollinator Initiative. On this stage, Koos Biesmeijer (Scientific Director of Naturalis Biodiversity Center) told about the Theory of Change in the Netherlands and its application in the ToC workshops of Promote Pollinators.
Subsequently, Sílvia Castro (FLOWer Lab, Centre for Functional Ecology – Science for People & the Planet | Department of Life Sciences – University of Coimbra) presented the ToC of Portugal. The possibility to participate in this workshop was a great opportunity for them to share experiences and knowledge with an interdisciplinary team and with the guidance of international experts from Promote Pollinators Alliance and the Naturalis Museum.
