Bees and other pollinators, such as butterflies, bats and hummingbirds, are increasingly under threat from human activities. Pollination is, however, a fundamental process for the survival of our ecosystems. Nearly 90% of the world’s wild flowering plant species depend, entirely, or at least in part, on animal pollination, along with more than 75% of the world’s food crops and 35% of global agricultural land. Not only do pollinators contribute directly to food security, but they are key to conserving biodiversity. 


To raise awareness of the importance of pollinators, the threats they face and their contribution to sustainable development, the UN designated 20 May as World Bee Day. The goal is to strengthen measures aimed at protecting bees and other pollinators, which would significantly contribute to solving problems related to the global food supply and eliminate hunger in developing countries. We all depend on pollinators and it is, therefore, crucial to monitor their decline and halt the loss of biodiversity. 

Theme of World Bee Day 2020: Save The Bees

History of World Bee Day 

World Bee Day on 20 May each year will draw attention to the essential role bees and other pollinators play in keeping people and the planet healthy. It provides an opportunity for governments, organizations, civil society and concerned citizens everywhere to promote actions that will protect and enhance pollinators and their habitats, improve their abundance and diversity, and support the sustainable development of beekeeping. The date for this observance was chosen as it was the day Anton Janša, a pioneer of modern apiculture, was born. Janša came from a family of beekeepers in Slovenia, where beekeeping is an important agricultural activity with a long-standing tradition. The proposal set forth by the Republic of Slovenia, with the support of Apimondia, the International Federation of Beekeepers’ Associations and FAO, to celebrate World Bee Day on 20 May each year met with approval by the United Nations General Assembly in 2017. World Bee Day intends to shine a light on the importance of pollinators to improve the conditions for their survival so that bees and other pollinators may thrive. 

2016- At the FAO Regional Conference for Europe, the Republic of Slovenia proposes World Bee Day 

2017- Proposal of World Bee Day is submitted for the consideration at the 4oth Session of FAO Conference 

2017- UN General Assembly unanimously proclaims 20 May as World Bee Day 20 May 

2018- First Observance of World Bee Day

    Hi Kushal Naharki, this is a mentor Sang Su Lee.

    Thank you for introducing the world bee day. I did not know about this event before reading your article. Bees are actually so imperative to our lives as you've mentioned in the passage. However, many of them are suffered from the electromagnetic wave that humans are making when using cell phones and wifi. This is so dreadful T.T. There is a netflix movie (black mirror series) that humans made drone bees after the extinction of bees. This is not the bright future...

    Thank you for your article.

    Hello Kushal Naharki, this is mentor Taehyun.

    Yesterday was World Bee Day! You wouldn't know this information unless it's from the ambassadors, but I think I'm getting to know it a lot because it's a great opportunity! I think the impact of bees on our ecosystem is amazing. The bees that help the plants reproduce, the most basic producer of the earth, are the foundation of the ecosystem!

    Thank you for the report!

    Green cheers!
