I’m really looking forward to taking part in this year’s “Bee Week” in Brussels. This is the fifth year that the European Parliament has hosted the event, which involves representatives of European institutions and national institutions, beekeepers, farmers, animal health specialists, NGOs, and scientists.
We will be coming together this week to exchange views, discuss current challenges and make recommendations to be addressed to policy makers. I will be presenting EFSA’s work on bees as well as listening to the contributions at the various conferences and discussion groups. I’m also curious to explore the “Bee village” that will be set up on the esplanade outside the parliament building.
There’s still time to register via the Bee Week website.
