Only few days left to sign the European Citizens’ Initiative to save bees and farmers!

To those in our network who have not signed the European Citizens’ Initiative to ‘Save bees and farmers’ yet, you can still do so until the end of September 2021!

Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Romania, Hungary and Latvia already reached the signature threshold and joined the European Citizens Initiative (ECI) hive in calling on the European Commission and Parliament to phase out synthetic pesticides by 2035, support farmers and save bees and nature.

Why is this important?

If the initiative gathers one million signatures by 30 September 2021, the European institutions must consider turning the campaign’s demands into law.

Help achieve this by adding your signature, help us spread the word and share the initiative widely within your network – by copy-pasting this text as an email, and/or on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram & Linktree.
