Curridabat, Costa Rica

We are collaborating with the award-winning city of Curridabat to establish it as a World Bee City©. Curridabat will become an important node in the World Hive Network©, a worldwide knowledge-sharing bee database connecting people to the global movement to protect pollinators.

Our partnership aims to forge new paths in sustainable urban planning. We will share the knowledge, strategy, planning, tools, methods, and the experience that Curridabat has developed with forward-thinking municipalities and inner city-communities around the world.

What’s good for bees is good for people

 

Curridabat has transformed the planning paradigms for environmental, social and economic development and consolidated an innovative city regeneration plan named Ciudad Dulce™ (Sweet City) for which it has won numerous awards.

This Precision Apiculture project seeks to enhance the health and effectiveness of managed honeybees for soft fruit production. The research challenge has been identified specifically by industry partners.
