BEES Market 2019

BEES CHRISTmas Market 2019

This year's Market takes place on 20 December 2019 and will be co-organised with the IPBES Belgian Focal Point.

BEES invites you to embark in a science-policy journey. Let's reflect together on how to tailor IPBES solutions to the Belgian, regional and local scale, and establish action points to verify, downscale and detail IPBES findings.

Three workshops will gather your valuable input on following questions : 

  • How will we better assess biodiversity and impacts on health and economy? [Q1]

  • How will we prioritize the causes or predict what will happen in the future? [Q2]

  • How will actions, policies and instruments (not) solve the crisis? [Q3]

Or "Ho, Ho, Ho", like Santa would say.

The BEES market is the single event gathering research and practice on the topic of 'ecosystems and society' on a Belgian scale. Research institutes and academic groups, administration projects and local initiatives on nature, forestry, agriculture, ecosystem services, environmental justice, green economy etc. meet in a personal and relaxed atmosphere, learning from each other and strengthening the community. 

The BEES Market brings together people from academia, public administration and civil society, from Belgium and abroad, with one common interest: ecosystem services. The BEES market is the perfect spot to exchange ideas, learn from other experiences and discover how ecosystem services are transformed into real products or daily life applications. The format of the event is a cozy afternoon in a friendly Christmas market-like atmosphere: the perfect event to wrap up the year in a useful and fun way. Participants can choose to have a stand, give a training session or just enjoy the market. 

Last edition took place on 18 December 2018 at INBO and ANB headquarters, in Brussels. You'll find the pictures here.
