The 2021 International Meeting of Young Beekeepers which was due to take place in Slovenia has been cancelled. In the current pandemic, the organisers decided that they could not guarantee the wellbeing of the participants so the meeting cannot go ahead. 

The objectives of IMYB are for young beekeepers to meet new friends from around the world, exchange their experiences and explore new cultures. The Slovenian team said "We hope you understand the decision. Hoping the situation gets better, we plan to meet you all in 2022 in Russia and then back again in Slovenia in 2023!" 

The British Beekeepers Association (BBKA) sends a team to the IMYB and will be informing next year's participants about the cancellation.
