Sydenham Fun Palace Beekeeping session

11 - 3pm Sunday 3 October

Billions of bees, butterflies, and beetles... are dying off, threatening ecological collapse. Toxic agricultural pesticides are among the key culprits, But now the European Union is considering a proposal to cut pesticide use by 2030 that could pave the way for a total phase-out across Europe in 15 years. As a trading superpower, the EU has enormous influence on setting global standards -- and a win here could have ripple effects globally.

I have signed the petition below -

"As citizens concerned about the fate of our bees and other crucial pollinators, we call on you to set ambitious goals to phase out the use of all synthetic pesticides, and take urgent measures to restore our habitats. We also urge you to support small, sustainable farming as part of the necessary transition towards an agriculture that allows nature and farmers to thrive in harmony."
