It has also already organized educational activities and continues to prepare and offer free seminars on topics such as Viticulture and Oenology, Local Traditional Recipes (from local traditional products), Beekeeping, Food and Beverage Processing and so on.

The activities of the beekeeping training took place during March and included, among others, a two-day training for novice beekeepers and a beekeeping day with the participation of two renowned representatives of the beekeeping industry, which was attended by both beginners and experienced beekepers.

For the organization of the above mentioned educational activities, "KEK Gennimatas" cooperated with the Beekeeping Association of Rhodes "Kipseli".

Following the developments and based on the new training requirements due to the pandemic of Covid 19, this training was implemented online through the modern e-learning platform of "KEK Gennimatas" for the absolute safety of the participants and the trainers.
