International Meeting of Young Beekeepers

IMYB 2017

There are a multitude of challenges facing honeybees today - but an event held on 6th-9th July has been celebrating a new generation of young beekeepers who are promoting and protecting the species. The 2017 International Meeting of Young Beekeepers has been held in the UK for the first time; Sally Challoner from the BBC Radio 4 Farming Today programme went along.

If you missed the programme, you can listen again to the programme.

The International Meeting of Young Beekeepers is a conference/competition held every year in different places across the world at which a team of three competitors and at least one team leader (adult) attend and take part in competitions, meet new people and find out about the city which they are visiting.
