The Golden Bee Award promotes and supports the innovation and excellence of individuals or legal persons who have made a significantly important contribution to projects aiming to protect bees and other pollinators and raise their visibility, while raising awareness of their long-term importance.

The recipient of the award for the field of research on bees and other pollinators will be selected by the Golden Bee Award Committee and presented with a sculpture by the President of the Republic of Slovenia, as a general rule, on 20 May 2023 in Slovenia.

With the Golden Bee Award, the Republic of Slovenia promotes World Bee Day, encourages the transfer of knowledge and technology, and increases Slovenia's global visibility as a green, healthy, proactive and innovative country.
