To celebrate the right to life, food, shelter and wellbeing, for women and bees in adversity and to recognise the role of women in biodiversity, Sabiha Malik imagined a model that could be implemented in areas where socio-economic inequalities constrain the capacity of the poorest and most vulnerable women living in hardship conditions.
To engage people everywhere in celebrating pollinators on World Bee Day, The World Bee Project launched World Bee Count 2020. We invited people to take a picture of the nearest pollinator they could find and upload it to an interactive Global Pollinator Map, using a free mobile app.
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.
This University of Reading 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. BerryWorld are one of the leading international soft fruit marketing businesses.
Projecte Equilibri, Mallorca, has 110 hectares under cultivation and 65 hectares of forest. We aim to demonstrate the economic value of a transition to Precision Apiculture that promotes the local bioeconomy and creates a more sustainable local food system. Together, we are developing a flagship project.
