World Bee Day
Get involved
Bees and other pollinators are essential for our existence,
sustaining agriculture and biodiversity worldwide. With over
20,000 species of bees and various other wild pollinators, they
face challenges from human activities, such as habitat loss,
pesticide use, and climate change.
World Bee Day 2024 highlights and celebrates the role of youth
in beekeeping and pollinator conservation. This year’s theme
emphasizes global cooperation to engage young individuals
in protecting these vital species. By doing so, we safeguard
food security, preserve agricultural livelihoods, and combat
biodiversity loss.
Use this guide to get inspired and get involved!

The theme for 2024
In recognition of the pivotal role that youth can play in addressing
challenges bees and other pollinators are facing, World Bee Day 2024
focuses on the theme “Bee engaged with Youth.” This theme highlights
the importance of involving young people in beekeeping and pollinator
conservation efforts, recognizing them as the future stewards of our
environment.
This year’s campaign aims to raise awareness among youth and other
stakeholders about the essential role of bees and other pollinators
in agriculture, ecological balance, and biodiversity preservation.
By engaging young people in beekeeping activities, educational
initiatives, and advocacy efforts, we can inspire a new generation of
environmental leaders and empower them to make a positive impact
on the world.
The celebrations for World Bee Day 2024 will include a global outreach
campaign and an in person event, bringing together high-level guests,
beekeeping experts, and youth participants from around the world.
This campaign will provide a platform for dialogue, collaboration, and
knowledge-sharing, fostering intergenerational exchange and inspiring
actiontowardsamoresustainablefutureforbeesandotherpollinators.

How to participate
Get involved in one of the following ways and encourage your network
to do so!
Bring world bee day to your own town or city.
Pro-bono advertising is a great way to increase the impact of World
Bee Day even beyond 20 May – pollinators play a vital role in protecting
ecosystem health and food security. Approach municipalities, outdoor
advertisers, transportation companies, such as city metro, buses or
trains, shopping malls, cinemas or airports now to display the World
Bee Day poster.
Community or school initiative.
Startaninitiativeinacommunityorschoolgardentoteachyoungpeople
about the benefits of pollinators and what healthy pollinator-habitats
look like. Learning how to protect pollinators through ecosystem-
friendly practices (plant diversity, integrated pest management)
supports the environment and helps boost food security.
Honey tasting.
To celebrate World Bee Day why not organize a honey tasting session
with your friends and family? Can you tell the difference between
honeys produced from different plants visited by the bees? Which is
your favorite? Can’t meet in person? Don’t worry, you can even find
virtual honey tasting sessions online!
Organize a world bee day event.
Embrace creativity by exploring various activities and innovative
event formats. Consider digital platforms or alternative approaches
to ensure inclusivity and engagement. From online discussions to
interactive workshops, there are countless ways to celebrate and
advocate for bees.

Parks and gardens.
If you enjoy a walk in the park or garden, why not make your local
town or municipality aware of World Bee Day? Many of the plants
and trees in the beautiful parks and gardens around the world would
not exist without our pollinators.
Spread the word.
Inform, educate and engage audiences with real facts. Join the
#WorldBeeDay campaign by sharing our free material on digital
channels. Identify and engage with local and national digital
influencers in the food and development sector (bloggers, actors,
popular public figures, photographers and experts) to amplify our
messages around sustainable beekeeping.
Add the world bee day button to your website.
Mark the day by including the World Bee Day button on your website
a week or two before 20 May and get people talking about bees and
other pollinators. Using a visual, such as the button is a great way
to increase interest and awareness about the day and show your
support.
Improve your knowledge.
Want to find out more about bees and pollinators? Then why not
visit the home of FAO’s Global Action on Pollination Services for
Sustainable Agriculture, where you’ll discover all sorts of resources,
including videos, publications, databases and details about major
initiatives related to bees and pollinators.
