We see the health of bees as a shared responsibility amongst multiple stakeholders and as something which must be collectively tackled. As a result, through our Bee Care Program, we are partnering with research institutes and universities, beekeepers and industry partners around the world on some exciting research projects and partnerships where we can really make a difference to the health of bees and other pollinators.
BEENOW will keep you informed about new co-operations and keep you updated about results from currently-running projects. Additionally it will offer further information and online material to support you in your own communication activities.
