Learning from the Bees | Berlin 2019 is dedicated to the bee and strives to spark cross-disciplinary dialogue among beekeepers, farmers, foresters, and others. Its mission is to bridge differences in ideology and practice and come together, unified by bees, to brainstorm alternatives to failing systems and help shape the future of beekeeping and environmental stewardship. 
 
This international conference features such experts as Prof. Thomas Seeley (Cornell University), Heidi Herrmann (Natural Beekeeping Trust), Dr. Przemys┼éaw Nawrocki (WWF, Poland), Markus Imhoof (More Than Honey), Albert Muller (Demeter beekeeper), and many others. Keynote presentations, panel discussions, and participatory breakout sessions address politically sensitive issues — rewilding bees in trees, pesticide control, ecosystem regeneration, activism — while Speed BEE Talks showcase several innovative projects.
 
Preceding the conference is an intensive, two-day workshop on Zeidlerei, the centuries-old tree-beekeeping tradition, largely preserved in East Europe. Under the guidance of Polish and German Zeidlers, participants will learn the craft: its history, how to carve and install log hives, both traditional and modern tree-climbing techniques (weather permitting), safety precautions, tool maintenance, and more.

Limited to 60 participants.

The conference will be held in English and German.
