THE FUTURE OF BEEKEEPING IS IN THE HANDS OF THE YOUNG GENERATION
10th INTERNATIONAL MEETING OF YOUNG BEEKEEPERS - IMYB
Banská Bystrica, Slovakia, 3rd July - 7th July 2019
Dear beekeeping friends,
We are pleased to invite you to the International meeting of young beekeepers IMYB 2019. After previous successful years of IMYB held in Czech Republic, Austria, Germany, Poland as well as equally successful events held more recently in United Kingdom and France, it is now possible to relive the experience in 2019 at the 10th meeting held in Slovakia, in the region’s capital Banská Bystrica, which will host IMYB for the second time. The event will take place at Secondary Vocational School, which is also the Centre for professional education and training of beekeepers.
The aim of the event is to raise a generation of young beekeepers who can follow in the footsteps of their more experienced colleagues, and to help these young people grow fond of this independent profession so beneficial for the whole society. To achieve this, it is essential to gain the necessary knowledge and skills of keeping and understanding bees.
The event combines a competition for young participants with a rich cultural and social program, which enables them to meet other young people who share the same interests. We believe the meeting in Banská Bystrica will continue in the good traditions of previous years.
