Watch: Students complete social action project to protect Bees

Students from Chiswick School work with Trust with aim to make Brentford Community Stadium more bee-friendly

13 June 2022

Working alongside the #iwillcampaign (iwill.org.uk), the Premier League set a challenge for students working with Brentford FC Community Sports Trust. The students have been asked to create a social action project to help address environmental sustainability. The same challenge has been set within local communities, schools or football clubs across the country.

The Trust had four students from Chiswick School outside Brentford Community Stadium to plant a number of bee-friendly flowers/seeds as well as place some signs with bee facts for supporters and passers-by to read. The purpose of the social action project was to raise the awareness of the importance of bees and how they are crucial in supporting the growth of trees, flowers and other plants benefitting the environment.

The students worked alongside Cultivate London an independent charity that helps to increase positive social outcomes by improving the natural environment. Cultivate supervised the students on the day, advising where planting should take place and educating the students on why the plants are beneficial to bees.
