Pollinator of the Year
To enhance the importance of pollination in all parts of society we created the Special Prize “Pollinator of the Year” which first was assigned to the Swedish Transport Administration in summer 2017. They received the prize for their work in sustaining blooming roadsides that supports the local insect fauna on Gotland, Sweden.
The following year a role model for farmers was chosen to receive the prize, Niclas Malm at Glyttinge Farm in Östergötland, Sweden. He has been working on smart and profitable solutions that can encourage farmers to sow pollinator friendly flowers in and around their cultured fields.
