Conway Hall, the Embassy of Slovenia and Bee Midtown are hosting an event in celebration of World Bee Day.
Over 30 hives from around the world will have stands presenting products distinctive to their region including honey – in all its varieties – pollen, propolis, royal jelly and wax, as well as honey-based products including biscuits, mead, spirits, candles and more. You’ll also get a chance to sample many of these.
At 7pm there’ll be a welcoming address by the Slovenian Ambassador, Tadej Rupel, the Chief Executive of Conway Hall, Dr. Jim Walsh and a representative from Bee Midtown.
The aim of World Bee Day – which has been designated by the United Nations on the initiative of Slovenia – is to raise awareness of the importance of bees and other pollinators for their contribution to sustainable development, food security and biodiversity.
Bees pollinate as many as 170,000 species of plant and every third spoonful of food is dependent on pollination.
Safeguarding bees safeguards biodiversity: the vast majority of pollinators are wild, including over 20,000 species of bees.
Cost: Free of Charge
