20 May 2021 | 13:00 -14:30 CET


This year, World Bee Day will fall during an exceptional moment in history, where many countries continue to deal with the widespread effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. On the occasion of the fourth observance of this International Day, FAO is organizing a virtual event on 20 May 2021 under the theme “Bee engaged: Build Back Better for Bees”.

The event will call for global cooperation and solidarity to counter the threats posed by the COVID-19 pandemic to food security and agricultural livelihoods alongside prioritizing environmental regeneration and pollinator protection. It will be an occasion to raise awareness of how everyone can make a difference to support, restore and enhance the role of pollinators. In the spirit of the International Year of Fruits and Vegetables, we will also remember how our pollinator heroes help produce nutritious and diverse fruits and vegetables.

Now is a time to re-think how we relate to nature and pollinators and what actions we can take to support these tiny hard workers and the livelihoods they, in turn, support.

Interpretation will be available in English, French, and Spanish.

The event will be webcast live here.
