Click here to read about how one school inspired its local community to protect pollinators – there’s a video as well.

Earlier this year a group of enterprising and creative Year 4, 5 and 6 pupils from St Alban’s Primary School in Hampshire won the Polli:Nation Project’s ‘Art with a Message’ competition for their ‘Pollinator Promise’ campaign.

The student-led campaign group secured pledges from pupils, parents, teachers and members of their local community to put aside a 1 x 1 metre plot to grow plants that provide food and shelter for pollinating insects.  They developed a catchy slogan:

Metre by metre let people know, metre by metre let pollinators grow!
