New: Wildflowers in Trinity to boost city biodiversity

 In biodiversity, Sustainable Cities, Trinity College Dublin, UN SDG 15 Life on Land, wildflower

Today sees the launch of Trinity College Dublin’s wildflower meadow campaign. Over the coming 7 days students, staff and the wider public can vote to transform the lawns outside of the university’s front gate into a wildflower meadow. Creating a biodiversity and insect haven in the heart of the city.

Lawn-mowing, ground preparation and pesticide control can disturb important insects that feed and nest in the soil. Planting wildflowers and minimising interference, by contrast, can support biodiversity and provide a habitat for native insects and food for pollinators in the city centre.

Sustainable cities embrace and nourish nature!
