Bee Bold Awards

12 Jul 2022

The Bee Bold awards are coming to the West of England this summer!

What are the awards?

We want the West of England to be the Bee and Pollinator Capital of the UK. West of England Metro Mayor Dan Norris has launched the region’s first Bee Bold Awards to recognise organisations big and small that are taking positive action to support bees and pollinators.

We are working together to increase the number of bees and pollinators in the region and make the West of England the Pollinator Capital of the UK. This will help to tackle the ecological crisis within the region.

41% of pollinator species including bees and butterflies are in decline across the UK. Our Climate and Ecological Strategy Action Plan sets the ambition to increase wildlife by 30% by 2030.

Why apply to the awards?

We all need to work together to protect and support pollinators and other crucial species to recover and thrive.

The Bee Bold Awards will share success stories and practical ideas to showcase our region and celebrate our innovative organisations.

Who can apply?

All businesses, charities, or community organisations currently operating within the region. Applications are welcomed from all sizes of organisations.

We will work with award winners to celebrate and promote their pollinator activity across the region.

To reflect the wide range of activity within the region, there will be two categories for the awards: Space for Nature and People for Nature.
