Website: www.globalbeeproject.org

Based in Gloucestershire, but with a global outlook and multicultural set of founders, the Global Bee Project is a social enterprise which raises awareness around protecting endangered bee species at home and abroad. The venture provides educational workshops, bee-related merchandise, and exhibitions and has created a global network of ‘Bee Guardians’.

The Global Bee Project also designs and builds bespoke living sculptures which double up as artworks and provide protected habitats and pollination resources. In addition Carlo, Jessie and Adam were chosen to exhibit as part of the Royal Society’s 350th anniversary celebrations.
