“Get London Buzzing” is creating opportunities for people who live and work in London to help pollinating insects in their local area.  The project will be delivering exciting events to champion pollinators, raise awareness of the threats that they face, and teach people how to protect them through workshops for local communities, showing how people can best create pollinator-friendly habitats in their gardens and green spaces.

Quick Facts:

  • Name of Project:  Get London Buzzing
  • Duration of Project: January 2023 – December 2024
  • Location of Project: London (with a focus around Camden, Lambeth, Lewisham, Westminster and east London.)
  • Species benefiting from Project:  All generalist pollinators
  • Project funded by:  Kusuma Trust UK, City Bridge Foundation, Green the UK & Milkywire

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.
