Four swarms of bees live on the roof of one of the WUEB buildings. It is one of the initiatives for sustainable development carried out at the Wroclaw University of Economics and Business. Bees live on the roof of the WUEB's LifeLong Learning Center building. Four bee families of the Krainka Sklenar G10 species have found a new home there. A total of nearly two hundred and eighty thousand bees will live in the hives.
The breed of these bees is very gentle and was created especially for intercourse with humans. Cities, and especially Wrocław, are great habitats for these insects, there are many parks and flowering squares here. Importantly, honey from cities does not contain heavy metals and other impurities, bees clean the nectar of all harmful substances - says Jędrzej Górny, beekeeper technician.

The vicinity of the campus of the Wroclaw University of Economics and Business creates fantastic conditions for bees, as there are many green areas nearby (including the South Park and the Anders Hill). The Flower Meadow, which is located next to one of the campus buildings, was also planted with these insects in mind.
»I am very happy about our next initiative for sustainable development, because with such activities we increase the pro-ecological awareness among students, employees and the business community cooperating with the University. We are trying to be an active leader of these changes« - says the Rector of the WUEB, Professor Andrzej Kaleta.

»We were one of the first to sign the University's Declaration of Social Responsibility. We have reached an agreement with the Climate Reality Project on the transition to renewable energy sources by 2030 and we are implementing them. We are conducting a debate on the introduction of climate education to the curriculum, thus responding to the needs of business expecting competences in the field of climate and energy challenges« - points out Professor Bożena Ryszawska, president of the Green Team, Center for Sustainable Development of the WUEB.
