Protecting Pollinators

Bees, both managed and wild, play an important yet often unseen role in food production and ecosystem health — as do other pollinators. Learn about the impact of policy on our buzzing friends, and how your food choices can make a positive impact.
One in every three bites of food we eat relies on honey bees, and wild pollinators are also key to our food system. All of these critical pollinators are at risk, and you can be part of the solution. Speakers will share the latest scientific information on how chemical-intensive farming and mono-culture are harming pollinators. Find out how states are taking the lead in pollinator protection, and why a new national pollinator protection bill deserves your support. Learn how beekeepers and communities are creatively stepping up to protect pollinators, and how you can get involved!

Our food choices have a direct impact on the future of the planet, and Slow Food Nations is a platform to inspire people to make changes that have a positive impact on the environment. The Food for Change Tent will tell this story, offer calls to action, and engage the public in the conversation through a series of free talks.
