About the Event

The EU Biodiversity Strategy was revealed last month by the European Commission. Its primary goals are to reduce the use of chemical pesticides, reverse the decline of pollinators, preserve 30% of EU lands and seas. The policy is meant as both a solution to bring back sustainability using the push of nature coming back due to lockdown rules and a solution to overcome the massive unemployment and economic crisis resulting from the corona crisis.
