Launched by the National Union of French Apiculture (UNAF), the APIdays® are part of the national program ‘Bee, Sentinel of the Environment’, of which the Principality has been a member since 2011. The APIdays® facilitate the organisation of events in the 130 partner sites, including the Principality of Monaco.

Every year in June, the Urban Planning Department organises an information day by offering educational and fun workshops and an exhibition to raise public awareness about bees, wild pollinators and beekeeping.

Several classes of schools in the Principality were welcomed to attend the honey harvest of the Monégasque apiary located on the roof of the Museum of Stamps and Coins in Fontvieille, and also to participate in various awareness workshops.

This year the exhibition took place outdoors on the terraces of the UNESCO Garden, in an effort to ecourage young students to adopt concrete measures in the protection of bees and the development of beekeeping.

The 10th edition was held under the theme ‘The Bee: Best Worker of France’, highlighting the multiple skills of the bee.
