Help us save bees and farmers

The European Citizens’ Initiative ‘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 by September 2020, the EU Commission and Parliament must consider turning the campaign’s demands into law.

You can contribute by signing and spreading the word by sharing the initiative widely within your networks. To do so, we have collected a range of communication materials, which you can find below.
