Join the final fight to save the bees

To the European Commission, the European Parliament and governments worldwide:

As citizens concerned about the fate of bees and farmers, we call on you to set ambitious goals to phase out the use of all synthetic pesticides, take measures to make sure habitats are restored and agricultural areas will become vectors of biodiversity recovery, and support farmers in the necessary transition towards agroecology.

Join the final fight to save the bees
The insect apocalypse keeps unfolding -- silently, billions of bees, butterflies, and other extraordinary tiny creatures are dying off, and the consequences may soon be catastrophic for our crops and fragile ecosystems worldwide.

Agricultural pesticides are among the key culprits. But now the European Union is considering an ambitious proposal to radically cut pesticide use by 2030 that could pave the way for a total phase out across Europe in 15 years. As a trading superpower, the EU has enormous influence on setting global standards -- and a win here could have ripple effects globally.

But first we must prevent the powerful chemical lobby from wrecking the plan. This is why we are joining an incredible coalition of environmental groups, farmers, beekeepers, and scientists to bring the 1 million citizen voices needed and ensure EU institutions address our demands.

And if we all join now, we will also empower key parliamentarians and officials with a massive boost of global public support so they resist the pressure, and help save our bees, butterflies, and farmers from deadly pesticides. We've done it in the past, let's do it again!
