An agricultural model good for pollinators: conference
Friday 25 October 2013
On 6th November 2013, in the framework of its Food Campaign, the Greens/EFA group is organising a public conference on 'An agricultural model good for pollinators: the way forward' in the European Parliament (Brussels, Belgium).
This event aims to raise awareness of the link between the existing dangers to pollinators and the current agricultural model. The first panel of this working session will give the floor to renowned academics who will address the harm caused to pollinators by the current agricultural model. The speakers will focus on the so-called '3 P': pollen, pesticides, pathogens, which are considered to be the main causes of bees decline. European beekeepers and NGOs will lead the discussion in the second panel, highlighting proposals for improvements and how these could translate into new EU agricultural policy. Both panels will leave space open for debate with the audience on the best options possible for pollinators and our food system.
