Online event - Tuesday 7th July 7pm: "Averting the Insect Apocalypse" Talk by Dave Goulson

3 July 2020

We are in the midst of the 6th mass extinction event, with extinctions occurring faster than at any time in the last 65 million years. 'Bioabundance' is in decline, with recent studies showing that insects in particular seem to be disappearing fast. If it continues, this will have profound consequences for mankind and for our planet. Dave Goulson will explain why insects are in decline, and suggest how we should tackle this crisis, first by turning our gardens into oases for life, and second by fundamentally changing the way we grow food.

Petition: Cycle parking at Worcester City Museum

https://www.change.org/p/worcestershire-county-council-cycle-parking-at-worcester-city-museum

Worcester City Museum has no public cycle parking. The City Museum is situated on a cycle lane. Cycle parking would mean that City Museum visitors can make sustainable transport choices and help ease the City's traffic congestion.
