Every third spoonful of food on Earth depends on bees or, more precisely, on pollination. The more the meadows are polluted and the more frequently they are mown, the smaller the number of bees. Do we even realize what that means for our future and for us?
The three authors behind the book No bees, no life are well aware of this. It is our mission to make sure this message reaches as many people as possible.
That is why we decided to publish a book like none before and it is being created over the last few months. We will shed light on this topic from different viewpoints together with 66 renowned beekeeping experts from 32 countries. We intend for the publication to be a homage to bees and beekeeping that will provide a technical yet comprehensible explanation suitable for all ages on why bees are so extremely important for our planet and what we can do to preserve them for the generations to come. The book will also offer a clear answer to why we need World Bee Day that will be celebrated for the first time on 20 May next year.
The book will take you on a walk through the history of beekeeping all the way to modern methods of caring for bees. The readers will learn about the role of bees in pollination, agriculture and global food production and about what everyone of us can do to help bees survive. The work will describe Slovenian beekeeping, beekeeping practices on other continents and the challenges beekeepers face. Facts will be accompanied by high-quality photographs.
The book will be published simultaneously in Slovenian and English language, because we want it to become a “world book” accessible in as many parts of the world as possible.
