Slovenian Convention Bureau Launches BeBee Campaign

The Slovenian Convention Bureau (SCB) has launched the social responsibility campaign BeBee.

The SCB comments on their website: "The BeBee campaign focuses on protecting bees that symbolise the diversity of natural resources and unspoiled nature in Slovenia. Bees reveal the level of environmental protection and symbolize the Slovenian vision of preserving nature. Furthermore, bees relate to the Slovenian uniqueness seeing that Slovenia is the only European country that has protected its indigenous species, the Carniolan bee.”

The BeBee campaign aims to increase the number of bee colonies, slowing down the negative trend of loss of colonies.

The SCB has invited members of the meetings industry to participate in the campaign by adopting a bee colony.

The website continues: “But do not worry, we will not send you a bee colony at your address. We would like to invite you to solely express your support of the BeBee campaign. On your behalf, the Slovenian Convention Bureau became an annual patron of the Beekeeping Association of Slovenia and its Carnolian Bees Conservation Trust. The Carnolian Bees Conservation Trust aims to protect Carnolian bees and raise awareness of the importance of bees. In collaboration with the Beekeeping Association of Slovenia, the BeBee campaign will enable one beekeepers' club in a Slovenian primary school to set up a learning beehive to breed and keep the bee colonies.”
