Young Greens announce 'bee grant' scheme

15 July 2017

The Young Greens have opened applications for Young Greens groups to apply for £500 of shared grant funding, for their 'Save the Bees' campaign. 

The campaign, which was launched at Spring Conference in Liverpool, asks for a ban on neonicotinoids pesticide, for local councils to create bee-friendly areas and for members to get involved by planting bee-friendly plants.

Groups who apply will share the £500 pot, and receive one to one guidance and support on running the campaign in their area.  

Campaigns Officer Ben Parker said:

"Young Greens groups often ask us for support in a number of ways when running campaigns, and the biggest ask is funding. This is a new innovative way of us collaborating as an exec committee and in local areas and we can't wait to see lots of great applications. This is a fantastic opportunity not only to grow and develop as a group, but to ‘Save the Bees!’ as well!"
