Pollinators and optimal human nutrition go hand in hand. This series of webinars is for Dietitians and Nutritionists (D-Ns) who already know about this critical link. If you need more on the link see Pollinator Power: Nutrition Security Benefits of an Ecosystem Service (2015 Aug). Pollinator Partnership‘s mission is to promote the health of pollinators, critical to food and ecosystems, through conservation, education, and research. They have international programmes under their International Commission for Plant-Pollinator Relationships and a clever acronym that aligns well with cross-pollination: S.H.A.R.E. (Simply Have Areas Reserved for the Environment).
Pollinator Partnership has a series of webinars and workshops that are from North America, but lessons that can be applied with your own species the world over. You can see by the featured image that the ‘Pollinator Week’ activities that happen annually in June are North-America Centric. Could we help get the rest of the world on the map? For more ideas, the #ICDAsfsToolkit also has some of their resources under Tools for Practice and Reports, as well as a Cross-Pollination Discussion Forum for registered #ICDAsfsToolkit members (it’s free!).
