Safeguarding Pollinators, People & the Planet

 

The World Bee Project (WBP) is a global social enterprise focussed on the relationship between pollinators and the most pressing issues that societies face today such as food security, environment, health and wellbeing.

We aim to bring scientific, technological, government and market forces together to achieve our ultimate goal of placing the natural world at the heart of public policy and enshrining environmental protection in national constitutions.

 

We design and implement projects that deliver benefits to pollinators, people and the planet

 

We implement research in sustainable intensification of agriculture that includes ecological, economic and social dimensions, where food and nutrition security, gender and equity are crucial components.

We offer solutions at community level that can transform gardens, rooftops and unused spaces into nectar and pollen havens for a variety of bees and other pollinators, such as butterflies and moths. We can also design and sustainably maintain small and landscape-scale specific breeding habitats and nectar sources for a variety of wild bees and other pollinators.

 
 

The World Bee Project is a member of Defra’s Pollinator Advisory Steering Group (PASG). The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) is responsible for safeguarding the natural environment, supporting the UK’s world-leading food and farming industry, and sustaining its thriving rural economy.

Defra very much welcome the work that the World Bee Project is doing in England to support the National Pollinator Strategy.

Defra is committed to working in partnership with a range of organisations to help deliver the aims of the National Pollinator Strategy. It is only through collaboration with organisations such as the World Bee Project and others that we will be able to achieve our vision of seeing pollinators thrive.”
