What will the project do?
Get London Buzzing training courses, will provide people with the skills to identify insects and the wildflowers they depend on; ensuring that people are trained to survey, monitor, and conserve pollinators into the future.
Inspiring the next generation, we are partnering with schools across London to get children immersed in nature and empowering children to take action for pollinators. If you are looking for educational resources to deliver at your school, please use our activity-filled national school pack, perfect for KS1 and KS2. Together, we can ensure pupils understand the importance of pollinating insects and what they can do to save them.
We believe everyone should be able to enjoy London’s green spaces, so we will be working hard to improve access to nature and helping people feel more connected to the natural world.
Partnering with businesses and landowners in London, we are increasing the amount of habitat along our London B-Lines – creating a network of wildflower corridors to allow pollinators to move freely through the city. Our habitat creation will be focused in Camden, Lambeth, Lewisham and Westminster. These native wildflowers are not only vital for pollinators and other wildlife, but they are also a beautiful feature for everyone in London to enjoy.
Get London Buzzing - School Workshop
Are you creating your own buzz and growing a wonderful wildflower area that is perfect for pollinating insects? We would love to see the haven you have created. Join our conservation effort to connect London for our precious pollinators and add your project to the B-Lines map.
How can you get involved?
Communities can get involved through a series of opportunities. Join us for:
- workshops in schools;
- training workshops on habitat management & creation;
- species monitoring and wildlife gardening.
Information, advice and support is also available to landowners who would like to know more about the project, how they can be involved and how to improve their land for pollinators.
Add your wildflower area to our B-Lines map!
