Polli:Nation Project Open for Applications

A new nationwide schools biodiversity project, called Polli:Nation, launched this month and is now open for initial applications.

Bumble Bee Conservation Trust is pleased to be involved in this project, which has been developed by the charity Learning through Landscapes. It will work with 260 schools across the UK to transform school grounds into pollinator havens and educate young people about the importance and variety of pollinators.

Successful schools will receive:

  • A grant of up to £4000 to help you transform their school grounds to become a haven for pollinating insects.
  • Expert support from LTL’s professional network to help transform the grounds, and transform the learning.
  • A wealth of free materials such as wildflower seeds.
  • Participation in and resources from a UK wide social science experiment developed for Polli:Nation by scientists at OPAL, with support from leading experts in the ecology and conservation sector.

If you are a teacher or parent and would like your school to participate in the project, you can find more information and submit your expression of interest here - http://www.ltl.org.uk/pollination/getinvolved.php
