After Germany in early January, at the beginning of February Belgium became the second European member state to reach its required threshold! The number of signatures in these countries for the Save Bees and Farmers ECI reached the respective thresholds, namely 72.000 for Germany and 15.750 for Belgium.
A minimum of 7 countries crossing their respective thresholds is required in addition to the one million validated signatures, in order for the ECI to be considered successful and for it to be officially accepted by the European Commission.
The aim of our Initiative is to obtain a paradigm shift in European agriculture towards a model that meets the needs of the environment, farmers and citizens alike, where all can thrive together.
Across the EU, we want to collect at least one million signatures for a bee-friendly agriculture and a healthy environment.
We have until the end of September 2020 to collect signatures in all 27 EU Member States.
