Agricultural pesticides are among the key culprits. But now the European Union is considering an ambitious proposal to radically cut pesticide use by 2030 that could pave the way for a total phase out across Europe in 15 years. As a trading superpower, the EU has enormous influence on setting global standards -- and a win here could have ripple effects globally.
But first we must prevent the powerful chemical lobby from wrecking the plan. This is why we are joining an incredible coalition of environmental groups, farmers, beekeepers, and scientists to bring the 1 million citizen voices needed and ensure EU institutions address our demands.
And if we all join now, we will also empower key parliamentarians and officials with a massive boost of global public support so they resist the pressure, and help save our bees, butterflies, and farmers from deadly pesticides. We've done it in the past, let's do it again!
