The Big Buzz! National Pollinator Conference & Fringe 2022

Friday 23rd September, 2022 - 8:45 am - 5:15 pm

University of Cumbria’s Brampton Road Campus, Carlisle & virtually

The Big Buzz! National Pollinator Conference & Fringe 2022 is the UK’s biggest gathering of pollinator enthusiasts and professionals, organised and hosted by the Get Cumbria Buzzing! pollinators project –  a Cumbria Local Nature Partnership project, coordinated and led by Cumbria Wildlife Trust.

It will highlight projects and communities that are making a tangible impact on the ground; projects and people that are giving our pollinators a better chance of not just hanging on, but thriving.

The state of pollinators in 2022…where next & what can we do?

Concern about the decline in pollinator species is constantly in the news, and people are worried. It seems a picture of doom and gloom, but this nationally important conference & fringe gives way to some hope.

The Big Buzz! National Pollinator Conference on 23 September, in Carlisle, will dive into the world of pollinator decline and look for solutions. It will seek agreement about how we proceed forward at our community level, stakeholder level and higher. You’ll have the opportunity to understand the issues, and develop your own solutions to the problems.

This will be the first in person, large scale, pollinator gathering since the pandemic. Our conference host – the University of Cumbria – is making sure it’s a safe and secure environment.  We warmly invite you to a reunion of friends & colleagues – old and new – to share, learn and work together.

The main session of the conference will be streamed LIVE if you can’t make it in person.

The full conference programme can be viewed on the Cumbria Wildlife Trust Website
