Let´s save the pollinators!
Pollinators are decreasing and it is a widespread problem. One out of every third bite we eat is linked to a pollinator, so our access to food will be strongly affected as the bees and their friends continue to vanish. There are places in the world where hand-pollination is already in use, but we will not be able to provide the earth's population with nutritious food without our flying friends.
What can you do to help pollinators?
- Plant meadow flowers, let the lawnmower rest and be careful if you use pesticides in your garden or on your balcony.
- Buy locally and organic food to increase biodiversity and reduce pesticides and transport.
- Build an insect hotels and set it up in your garden, put out shallow water for them to drink during the hot months.

What do we do?
We made a challenge for all the schools in our region to build insect hotels. The aim of the competition was to get children to learn about the importance of pollinators and what we can do to help them. In a creative and fun way, they built hotels and made a short film about their work, the film was their contribution.
