Today we celebrate Word Bee Day

Related to the today's celebration of the World Bee Day today (May 20), and pointing out the importance of the bees, beekeeping and their contribution to sustainable development, environment, healthy food, solving problems related to the global food supply as well as to eliminate hunger, our Consulate General uses every opportunity to promote this noble aim, as well as to promote Slovenian activities in that regard - beside protecting the bees also Slovenian good praxes in beekeeping, api tourism and variety of home made Slovenian honey products.

Our activities in this year included promotion of the bees, Slovenian beekeepers and honey products at February's event in Cleveland “Kurentovanje”, which was a big success, organizing so called “Honey Breakfast” with the students in order to promote and educate about the importance of the bees and other pollinators for our world, making special roll up to promote World Bee Day widely in the US, and inform the public via social media (mostly our Facebook side) about the importance of this issue. Unfortunately, due to the current pandemic, which has had an undeniable impact on the beekeeping sector, affecting the production, the market and as a consequence, the livelihoods of beekeepers, we were unable to organize other planned events. Stay Bee engaged!
