If bees don’t thrive neither do we. Responsible for pollinating more than $20 billion worth of crops annually in the US alone, honey bee health is critical to our survival. The Honey Bee Initiative is a program supported by George Mason University’s School of Business and operated by the Business for a Better World Center. Designed to empower communities through sustainable beekeeping, we offer opportunities to engage in scientific research, design art projects, connect with the community, and even study abroad. Partnerships with government, for-profit businesses, non-profit organizations, and community members are vital to the success of the initiative.
