Once upon a time…
In 2017, our founders made a vow to “Save the Bees”. We began as a small neighbourhood club, knocking on doors to raise money for our cause. Eventually, we began using our funds to build gardens for local schools – this allowed us to create bee-friendly urban spaces while engaging the community in the process. So why the bees? Why are they so important, and why did they need saving? Bees are incredibly important members in the food chain, and they’re responsible for pollinating a third of the world’s crops. If they were to disappear, it would become much harder to feed the world’s growing population. Unfortunately, this is exactly what has been happening. In just the United States, the number of honeybees declined by 61% between 1947 and 2008. Last winter alone, we saw a decline of 35.6%.
Here’s What We Did to Help.
Green Spaces Created
Branches Worked With
We realized that youth everywhere wanted to combat environmental issues – like we did – but found it difficult to start. Many existing environmental groups we’ve worked with had troubles making a lasting impact, because they spent most of their time fundraising, networking, and putting together resources. That’s why decided to expand our mandate and begin working with other youth around Canada.
We network, fundraise, and partner with organizations around the world to empower our member groups
We onboard environmental groups to share our resources with, and give them the tools they need to tackle environmental issues.
Working with these groups, we deliver meaningful projects that make a lasting impact.
