Good beekeeping practices for sustainable apiculture

CELEBRATING WORLD BEE DAY WITH AIMA, International Association of Agricultural Museums

Digital AIMA Lecture, MAY 20TH, 3.00 PM CET: GOOD BEEKEEPING PRACTICES FOR SUSTAINABLE APICULTURE

We are more and more aware of the significance of beekeeping for agriculture and in preserving biodiversity. Traditionally, beekeeping was important for bee products, while today we are becoming aware of the significance of bees and other pollinators for our survival. Museums around the world cooperate with beekeepers and nature conservationists in spreading awareness on how to ensure better conditions for bees and other pollinators.

Though a small nation, Slovenia is a beekeeping power with many innovative ideas for sustainable beekeeping. Through different institutions, it contributes to the spread of knowledge over two hundred years old about beekeeping in Slovenia and abroad.

The event is about sharing best practices in preserving important values and traditional beekeeping, connected with apiculture in different European countries with rich apiculture traditions, such as in Slovenia, Poland and Austria.

To join the event, please register before May 19th by emailing aimalecturesreg@gmail.com and we will provide you with the Zoom-Link for our meeting.
