Monday marked the second annual World Bee Day and the start of Pollinator week in Sweden.

Its aim is to raise public awareness about how important pollination is to us, and how important pollinating insects are, which includes bees.

Radio Sweden caught up with beekeeper Lotta Fabricius Kristiansen, one of the organisers of Pollination Week, and asked her what people can do to help pollinators.
