Protecting Pollinators,
People & the Planet

All our lives depend on biodiversity for nutritious food, clean air, fresh water, and a stable climate.
This is why
we address the need for data-based understanding and nature-positive solutions.

Innovation at the Service of Bees

The World Bee Project CIC is the first private initiative in the world that uses AI and advanced technologies to monitor pollinator and biodiversity declines from a global perspective to help find long-term solutions to benefit both nature and people, not one at the cost of the other. The World Bee Project adaptively co-designs and co-implements solutions, focussing on the interconnections between bees and people in the context of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Innovative Data-Driven Solutions

The World Bee Project develops  innovative data-driven solutions such as the World Hive Network© to address pollinator health challenges in cities, smallholder farms and agriculture and food supply chains.,

We Need Bees

Over 75% of the nutritious food we eat depends on pollination. Pollination sustains global food and nutrition security, crop production, wild plant diversity, ecosystem balance, healthy soils, clean air, and beekeeper and farmer livelihoods.

Connecting Hives, Connecting Lives

The World Bee Project supports, connects, and amplifies new technologies and scientific study to improve the health and well-being of bees and other pollinators. It uses Artificial Intelligence (AI), data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT) to power the World Hive Network© to generate solutions to wider issues of biodiversity, climate change, food security and human well-being.

The Bees Need Us

Intensive farming, harmful pesticides, overpopulation, urban sprawl, loss of floral habitats, deforestation, and climate change are all placing devastating pressures on pollinators.  

What We Do

We harness the power of bee-derived intelligence and create data-driven solutions to improve the management capacity of underlying support systems. We adaptively co-design and co-implement solutions, focussing on the interconnections between bees and people in the context of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Mission

Our mission is to blend Artificial Intelligence (AI) and computing technology with world-leading bee research to help solve the interrelated challenges of biodiversity decline, climate change, food and nutrition insecurity, loss of beekeeper and smallholder farmer livelihoods, and threats to human well-being.

Vision

Our vision is grounded in advanced technology and informed by real-world capabilities. We aim to generate new knowledge to enhance the contribution of pollinators to biodiversity, food security, climate mitigation and human well-being.

The World Bee Project’s greater vision is to place the natural world at the heart of public policy and enshrine environmental protection in national constitutions.

Pillars

The World Bee Project innovation consists of three pillars, the World Hive Network©, the World Bee Welfare© mark, and World Bee City©. In all our projects, we use the knowledge and insights we generate from these mechanisms to benefit Pollinators, People, and the Planet.

The World Hive Network©

The World Hive Network© is the world’s first global bee health platform and now has 50,000 intelligent hives in its network. It uses AI, IoT and data-driven technology to remotely monitor honeybees to generate understanding of the pollinator and pollination crisis from a global perspective.

World Bee City©

World Bee City© seeks to place pollinators at the heart of cities to enhance the well-being of pollinators and people. Monitoring technology can change the game for conservation in urban locations by identifying restoration actions that need to be taken.

World Bee Mark©

The World Bee Mark© eco-label drives responsible production and consumption of honey with novel technologies and an innovative approach that ensures honey quality, authenticity, and bee health and welfare.
