Curridabat, Costa Rica

We are collaborating with experts from award-winning city of Curridabat to establish 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.
