In October 2017, it was decided to celebrate World Bee Day on 20 May, a symbolically important date for beekeeping. This date coincides with the birth of Anton Janša (1734-1773), a Slovenian breeder and beekeeper who is mainly remembered as one of the forerunners of rational beekeeping. This date, therefore, is not only to remember this important pioneer of modern beekeeping techniques, but also the important role played by Slovenia in promoting this important day and beekeeping and bees in general.
