Announcement of winners of the #BeeOasis Competition for World Bee Day 2020

For this year's World Bee Day, we launched a competition on social media focusing on the importance of bee-friendly environments, as the declining number of bees and other pollinators has become a global concern.

Participants in the Nordic countries were invited to submit a photo or short video capturing a bee-friendly spot. The aim of the initiative was to raise awareness of the vital role that bees and other pollinators play in our ecosystem and to encourage efforts to create and protect bee-friendly environments.

1st prize: Julie Nielsen, Nim, Denmark

2nd prize, Rebekka Bond, Ecosystem Såkroken, Norway

3rd prize: Matej Zore, Helsinki, Finland
