International Meeting of Young Beekeepers 2017
Welcome to the International Meeting of Young Beekeepers 2017
International Meeting of Young Beekeepers
July 6th to July 9th 2017
The BBKA is raising money to stage the 2017 International Meeting of Young Beekeepers ( IMYB). It is the only event that brings together youngsters from many different countries and beekeeping traditions.
The IMYB has been held since 2010 and previously has taken place in mainland Europe. In 2017 it is being held in England at Marlborough College. The BBKA needs to raise £80,000 to make it a successful event.
We have set up a Just Giving Page - Our Future in Young People. Please give what you can to support this.
Ian Homer, organiser of the event, said “Marlborough College in Wiltshire has kindly agreed to host the competition and we are hoping to give the competitors a quintessentially English experience. The IMYB always includes cultural visits and we intend to make sure they have a memorable trip.”
23 countries have pledged to send competitors - the two newest ones are India and South Korea.
