On 31 August 2017 Reuters reported:
Since 2011, the main congress center in Slovenia's capital -- Cankarjev Dom -- has been hosting bees on its roof, producing about 120 kg (265 lb) of honey per year which are used for gifts to business partners. It started at the Apimondia world congress of beekeepers in 2003, held at Cankarjev Dom. Franc Petrovcic, head of maintenance of mechanical equipment at the center, who last week won an international agriculture fair award for the quality of his honey, started a movement that is spreading fast. It is estimated that bees are now to be found at about 150 locations in 300,000-population Ljubljana, mostly in gardens, on roofs, and terraces. Gorazd Trusnovec keeps bees on 15 locations in the capital ... 'Ljubljana has a huge potential (for beekeeping) because it is very green and located in the middle of forests,' Trusnovec said. Petrovcic, meanwhile, says recent tests showed that urban honey is very healthy. For one thing, it has no traces of pesticides since there are no large fields in the vicinity.
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of environment, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
Bee populations across European Union have been in decline for years mostly due to an extensive use of pesticides in agriculture.
