This Wednesday a famous actor, film maker and humanitarian activist Angelina Jolie visited Saint Baume France to give diplomas to 8 beekeepers, first graduates of the programme «Women for Bees». A UNESCO-Guerlain project trains women as beekeeper-entrepreneurs and protectors of native bee habitats around the world in order to create a global network of women who will be trained to protect these essential pollinators. With the support of the French training centre, the Observatoire Français d’Apidologie (OFA), the programme will have Angelina Jolie for a Godmother, helping promote its twin objectives of women’s empowerment and biodiversity conservation.
