What is it about?

The ECI ‘Save bees and farmers’ wants to phase out synthetic pesticides by 2035, support farmers, and save bees and nature. If the initiative gathers one million signatures, the EU Commission and Parliament must consider turning the campaign’s demands into law.

Where can I find more information?

If you are supportive of this cause, you can check their website and browse the initiative’s communication materials. Information about the initiative is available in more than 20 languages and they have also released a set of animation videos to learn why it is crucial to sign and share the petition.
