22nd of March: Pollinator Friendly Farming is possible: conference-debate.

Monday 11 March 2013


Risks of neonicotinoids for bee health and environmental safety have been acknowledged. Let’s take this as an opportunity to put on the table solutions and to spread pollinator friendly farming models. Let’s discuss on how to recover a synergy between pollinator health and agricultural practices, taking into account economic, environmental and social aspects?
Registration still open. We look forward to seeing you.

The aim of the event is to share experience on alternatives to neonicotinoid pesticides with academics, farmers, beekeepers, policy makers, NGOs, citizens…. Scientists and field technicians are going to present their research on alternative agricultural practices to neonicotinoids. Farmers will explain how they manage the implementation of such practices and which challenges they face. Beekeepers are going to explain their challenges and opportunities when interacting with agriculture.

The event is co-organised by Bart Staes Greens/EFA MEP, the European Beekeeping Coordination and PAN Europe, in the framework of the Week Without Pesticides. Partners: Slow Food Karikol Bruxelles, Slow Food International, L'heureux Nouveau and Pajottenlander.
