[NBS Card] Beehive Provision and Adoption
Beehiving” offers a manmade replica of the natural environment, aimed to produce honey (the term is used interchangeably with “bee keeping”). The focus here is “beehiving” in urban areas, a relatively recent phenomenon. Such beehiving must be complemented by other functions, i.e., “side-activities” capable of supporting “harmony” with the surrounding urban dwellers and context. Getting that relationship right is a core task which incorporates revitalizing urban ecosystems, awareness creation, mindset change, distribution chains, and social innovation. Success in that regard supports the wellbeing of citizens while also increasing access to the healthy products produced by bees.
