#beeCoherent Awards for MEP Candidates Championing Bees

With elections for the European Parliament just around the corner, citizens are preparing to shape Europe's future. At BeeLife, we stand for a well-informed democracy. That is why we recently presented a BeeCoherent score, measuring the performance of Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) on some of the most pressing legislative bills impacting bees. MEPs' work directly impacts the European landscape, the environment, and biodiversity, making your vote on this 6-9 June crucial.


To highlight MEPs committed to shaping a bee-friendly Europe, we present the #beeCoherent Awards. This award is granted to MEPs who are once more candidates for the European elections for their legislative work to ensure that Europe protects bees and fulfils its commitment to 'halt and reverse the decline of pollinators'. Awarded MEPs have proven to act according to their environmental commitments concerning bees.


(See the complete list of award recipients below)


Before the elections, we celebrate these champions of bees in the EU and hope their work will continue and inspire others in the 2024-2029 legislature.


For detractors of measures that will help protect bees and other pollinators (MEPs with lower BeeCoherent scores), we at BeeLife reiterate our commitment to working together. We support scientific-based policies and will continue to present fact-based arguments for efficient and safe policies that ensure bees and pollinators can fulfil their essential role in maintaining healthy ecosystems, a fair agriculture and a healthy Europe.



(Sample of BeeCoherent Award Certificates)


Recently, we launched a series of pledges for candidates for the European Parliament to commit to pollinator-friendly policies. These pledges are not just promises but a roadmap towards a Europe with healthy fields, sustainable and fair agriculture, and thriving pollinators.
