20 May Marks Second Observance Of World Bee Day

On Monday, 20 May, Slovenia and the entire world will celebrate the second World Bee Day, which the UN General Assembly proclaimed on 20 December 2017. The proclamation, which is the result of cooperation between the Slovenian Beekeeping Association (the initiator of the proposal) and the Republic of Slovenia, is one of Slovenia’s greatest diplomatic achievements. The main purpose of World Bee Day is to raise global awareness about the importance of bees and other pollinators for humankind, particularly with respect of fighting world hunger.
