First World Conference in Organic Beekeeping Bulgarian Black Sea Coast, 27-29 August 2010  - FIRST CALL -

This conference is coordinated and organized by Stefan Bogdanov, Bulgarian Organic Beekeeping Association, Bulgarian Beekeeping Union and the World Federation of Beekeepers' Associations Apimondia. It is going to take place near the ancient city of Nessebar on the Bulgarian
Black Sea coast. The deterioration of the ecological conditions on our earth is preoccupying the people and also the beekeepers all over the world. Ecological beekeeping is a relatively new beekeeping practice. Therefore there is a big need to summarise the present knowledge and experience in the field. The aim of this first conference is to discuss all important issues of organic beekeeping and to help beekeepers towards an efficient and satisfactory ecological beekeeping practice. Interesting regarding this conference is that not only mainstream organic issues are going to be discussed.

The conference language is English. All topics concerning organic beekeeping will be discussed, specifically divided into six parts:
* Sustainable beekeeping and beekeeping in developing countries
* Beekeeping management
* Disease control
* Beekeeping environment
* Bee products and apitherapy
* Regulation and certification
