Australian Pollinator Week

Event Ideas

You may already have ideas for a pollinator event to run in your community or organisation. If not, here are a few of ours to share.

Coordinate a screening of 'The Pollinators'

Arrange a cinema screening of ‘The Pollinators’ near you. 

If there is not already a screening scheduled nearby, you can nominate one risk free and at no cost. The screening will only proceed where the minimum number of tickets are sold.

Once your booking is confirmed, register your event on this website for free.

Conduct a wild pollinator count

The Wild Pollinator Count project invites you to count wild pollinator insects in your local environment and help to build the Australian database on wild pollinator activity.

You can participate anywhere in Australia by watching a flowering plant for ten minutes and reporting the insects you observe.

You could run a public Wild Pollinator Count event and list it on the APW website so your local community can join in.

Consider collaborating with your local Landcare groups, schools, Bee Club or Botanical garden society to build an annual event during Australian Pollinator week.

Prepare a Bee-Inspired Menu.

Restaurants and cafe’s can share in Australian Pollinator Week celebrations with a specials menu that features pollinator-dependant ingredients.

Include foods that rely on pollinators and promote their importance for food security and diversity.

Collect donations and/or direct a share of meal takings during Australian Pollinator Week towards the ‘Rita Fund‘ to support native bee research and conservation in Australia.
