World Bee Day: History
The United Nations has decided to declare May 20 as World Bee Day to commemorate the birthday of beekeeping pioneer Anton Jansa. The government of Slovenia has proposed the idea of celebrating May 20 as World Bee Day in 2016 with the support of Apimondia.
Slovenia’s proposal to mark this day as World Bee Day was approved by UN member states in 2017. The resolution called for the implementation of specific conservation measures and emphasized the importance of bee conservation and its importance to humanity. In 2018, World Bee Day was celebrated for the first time.
World Bee Day: Meaning
Bees play an important role in maintaining the balance between humans, plants, animals and the environment. Without bees, food would be scarce and much of the population would starve to death. It is because they increase agricultural production around the world through pollination. As a result, World Bee Day is celebrated to raise awareness about the threats bees face as a result of human activities and to recognize the importance of bees to our biodiversity.
