Ireland’s Buzzing: International Conference on Pollinator Conservation

Limerick City: 19-20 May 2021


In 2015, Ireland became one of the first countries in Europe to publish a pollinator strategy. This event will bring together a large audience to learn from international experts about successful pollinator initiatives around the world. It will also provide an opportunity to hear about the challenges and innovative approaches adopted by other national pollinator strategies in Europe, as well as key successes from the first phase of the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan (2015-2020). Importantly, the event will provide the audience with an opportunity to contribute their thoughts and ideas into the next version of the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan, so that together we can make the 2021-2025 Plan as ambitious as possible.  

This event is being organised by Limerick City and County Council in collaboration with the National Biodiversity Data Centre who manage the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan. It will be held in the Strand Hotel Limerick. Limerick has been awarded the European Green Leaf for 2020. The European Green Leaf Award (EGLA) is open to towns and cities with between 20,000 and up to 100,000 inhabitants, to recognise and promote their efforts towards better environmental management and outcomes. This international pollinator conference will be one or a range of activities happening in the city across 2020.
