Pollen go round

An interactive educational workshop for families created by the multidisciplinary team of The Bee Camp on the importance of the bees for the planet. Through interactive activities and games for families we aim to raise awareness about the important role of the bees, their role on pollination and the issues they face on a world level. The participants will be invited to explore life in the hive through a theater game and learn all about how they can take actions to protect the bees! This event is part of the Bees & Buzz activities, that aims to create awareness on the protection of the urban biodiversity, focusing on the vital role of parks and green spaces for supporting pollinators in urban environments.

Grow Our Humanity

Humanism highlights human beings’ responsibility to the world. As a philosophy and a commitment, it has led the human kind from dark spots many times already. By bringing to public space inspiration from the most notable European humanists, we want to stimulate a vision of future based on shared emphasis on humanity as a commitment.
