11. NOVEMBER 2021 | Webinar: Flowers for pollinators

Welcome to the digital webinar: Flowers for pollinators - exchange of knowledge on how to provide high-quality habitat and green corridors in Northern Europe.

Populations of wild bees and other pollinators have been in significant decline over the past two decades, attributed to various factors including loss of foraging habitat. In this webinar we will look at different ways to establish good habitats – especially in farmlands and other cultural landscapes.
