In celebration of World Bee Day, beehives were placed in Korai Square, Athens on Wednesday.

The initiative “Bee Day Greece” was organised by the Municipality of Athens, the Culture, Sports and Youth Organisation of the City of Athens, the International Festival of Digital Arts and Athens Digital Arts Festival.

World Bee Day has been officially recognised by the United Nations (UN), in a resolution to focus our attention on the importance of preserving honey bees and other pollinators and recognising the importance of bees for providing for the needs of humanity.

The objective of the initiative is to support global efforts towards sustainable development goals, and to promote international cooperation in resolving global challenges concerning food security, climate change and the conservation of biodiversity.
