Their food and habitat are disappearing fast, and so are the bees. And if bees disappear forever that’s bad news for all of us. Starting from this alarming observation, the French observatory of apidology, the OFA, launched the Flowers for Bees initiative, involving individuals and schools to sow seeds in gardens, flower pots, in window boxes, in order to save the bees. Meet Thierry Dufresne, president of the OFA, and photographer Eric Tourneret, author of Les Routes du miel, who will discuss ways to change the critical situation of honeybees.

Around 2000 pupils from French & British schools in the UK are teaming up to save the bees! Taking part in bilingual educational sessions on honey bees and their vital role, students and their teachers are sowing flowers in local natural areas with packs of seeds provided by the OFA.
