Symposium on Beekeeping and Development Student Registration

Categories: Event Bookings , Education , Bees , Beekeeping & Honey Hunting

Publisher: Bees for Development

Registration for students includes participation for two full days, 28 and 29 March and includes attendance at all presentations, morning and afternoon refreshments and lunch on both days. This ticket is offered to students who can provide evidence that they are registered in full-time education. 

This event will provide a unique forum for presentations and discussions around the topic of beekeeping and sustainable development, and for generating new relationships among those in this field.

The purpose of the Symposium is to advance understanding about the intersection of beekeeping science and international development. It is increasingly recognised that beekeeping has a role to play in poverty alleviation interventions for small-scale farmers; many international development organisations deliver beekeeping projects to address the goals of poverty reduction and biodiversity maintenance. There are an increasing number of researchers studying beekeeping in development. This scientific forum will bring together stakeholders to share evidence-based learning about how to effectively advance beekeeping to alleviate poverty.

This two-day Symposium will take place at the campus of The School of Agriculture, Policy and Development, University of Reading. Please go to the Events and Courses section on this website for more information.
