About Pollinating London Together

Pollinating London Together (PLT) aims to raise awareness of the importance of biodiversity, pollinators and their substantial recent decline. PLT was created by a group of livery companies of the City of London and is now a growing network of non-profit, academic and private sector collaborators.

OUR MISSION: To enhance green spaces where all native pollinators can thrive, and their green space habitats can be enjoyed by everyone, starting in the City of London.

OUR VISION: To create a template for change and action through leadership that can be implemented in urban environments across the UK.
