朱莉最近被命名为“戈佛尔”的蜜蜂的女性倡议,一个五年的计划,旨在通过作为养蜂人培训他们来赋予妇女。

该计划是联合国教育,科学,文化组织(教科文组织)和普拉恩之间的广泛伙伴关系的一部分,是世界上最古老的香水房屋之一。Jolie是法国化妆品屋蒙圭莱香水的脸。

来自柬埔寨,中国,法国,意大利,埃塞俄比亚,卢旺达,保加利亚,俄罗斯和斯洛文尼亚的妇女将在今年培训,随着计划的进展,更多加入。

而且,Jolie自己将加入加速的30天培训计划,由普罗旺斯法国人类天文学的养蜂专家领导。这位45岁的演员深刻地相信保护环境的重要性,并且教学女性将成为这个星球的好管家将取消连锁反应。

当女性获得技能和知识时,他们的本能就是帮助抚养他人。我很高兴能够与世界各地参加这个计划的女性,“朱莉在一份声明中说。“I look forward to getting to know them and learning about their culture and environment and the role bees play in that. I hope the training will strengthen their independence, their livelihoods and their communities.

拯救蜜蜂和赋予妇女权力

简而言之,这个星球不能没有蜜蜂。According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, pollinators like bees and butterflies help pollinate roughly 75 percent of the world’s flowering plants. They pollinate approximately 35 percent of the world’s food crops—including fruits and vegetables. And they also support the production of 87 of the world’s leading food crops.

“要拥有一个网络,学习如何成为所有最新科学和方法的最佳养蜂人,并拥有他们可以制造和销售的东西,”朱莉said在接受国家地理学的采访中。“这不仅仅是关于教学女性,这是关于从世界各地的女性学习有不同做法的女性。”

But bee populations are dwindling. Although there are more than 20,000 different species, a 2016评估通过联合国的粮食和农业组织(粮农组织)发现,越来越多的传导士物种正在灭绝的边缘。但是,Jolie认为我们可以采取行动来保护粉刷者。

“Instead of stepping forward and saying, ‘We are losing the bees, we have certain species that have gone extinct, are going extinct,’ we’re coming forward to say, ‘Yes, this is how you have to protect.’ You have to be more conscious of chemicals and deforestation,”朱莉解释说。

“但是,这里有不同的人可以做的事情。你甚至不必有土地,但你可以考虑成为解决方案的一部分,“她继续。“我们令人兴奋的是,我们通过解决方案[和]赋予他们生计的妇女权力。”

In addition to fostering women’s empowerment, the female beekeeping entrepreneurship program will promote the welfare and maintenance of local and native bee populations. It will also provide education on the importance of pollinators.

朱莉的人道主义者

朱莉has been a longtime advocate of at-risk groups, including refugees, women, and children for the past two decades.

在她作为联合国难民高级委员会的特使的角色,演员和主任在世界各地开展了几十个野外任务,以与难民会面。在第二次海湾战争期间,她甚至常常前往像叙利亚伊拉克边境的危险战区。

2003年,她创立了Maddox Jolie-Pitt基金会 - 一个保护小组(以她的老年儿子命名),这些是为了保存柬埔寨的环境和濒临灭绝的野生动物。

“With so much we are worried about around the world and so many people feeling overwhelmed with bad news and the reality of what is collapsing, this is one that we can manage,”朱莉说。“我们肯定可以进入并做我们的一部分。”
