Syrian beekeeper to deliver keynote speech at BVA Members’ DaySyrian beekeeper to deliver keynote speech at BVA Members’ Day

Syrian refugee and beekeeping expert Dr Ryad Alsous will deliver the keynote speech at BVA Members’ Day 2018.

Dr Alsous was previously head of the bee department at the Agricultural Institute at Damascus University. But in 2013 he was forced to flee Syria for the UK, leaving behind 200 hives and research into beekeeping and environmental pollution.

Speaking at BVA members Day (20 September) Dr Alsous will share his personal story and how he set up The Buzz Project to support other refugees and job seekers in the UK.
