IMYB in Slovenia is postponed to 2021

Dear all,

As you might be aware, unfortunately, the global public health situation is getting more severe. Recently, WHO has declared the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic. Countries started to close their borders and limit any larger gatherings (incl. many EU countries). Flights across the world are being cancelled, businesses are closing, and mainly, everything is being re-focused on health and well-being of individuals.

It is our belief that the health and safety of any individual should never be compromised. The ICYB team wants to support young beekeepers, but under no circumstances, wants to put our future generation at risk.

Therefore, we find it morally responsible to postpone IMYB event in order to be able to guarantee safety of all participants and to not create unnecessary risks.

Thus, we would like to officially announce that IMYB in Slovenia will be postponed to a new date, July 5th – July 9th 2021, and subsequently, IMYB in Russia will be postponed from 2021 to 2022.

We hope you will all understand that the decision was not easy, but necessary.

Wishing good health to you and your love ones,

Jiri Piza

ICYB president
