One third of our food is delivered by bee pollination. However, there is a fact that many bees disappear all over the world. Yasuki Funabashi, as an apiarist, started “Bee Education” to protect bees. What can we learn from bees? Talk intensely with lots of love.
Representative director of Honey Farm General Incorporated Association, and Committee of Honey Bee Happy Community Development.
Starting his life from a CEO of an environmental consulting company, he devoted himself in various environmental actions including Environmental Committee of METI Industrial Structure Council. The encounter with honey bees opened his eyes to the great dignity of nature, and he founded Honey Farm. He demonstrated bee education by raising honey bees at Higashiyama Botanical Garden and Zoo (Nagoya) and during Aichi Expo 2005. His honey was prized as the most delicious honey in the world by a French honey specialist. From there he has been vigorously trying to solve world food crisis by preventing honey bee extinction with the Opera House in Paris, beekeepers and artists around the world.
