During the Hive residency, I had the chance to collaborate with Audrey Jaillard and Dorota Orlof in order to develop a workshop for the Bivy Camp, a summer camp for teens in the south of France. The theme for this year’s summer camp was food and agriculture, so we decided to develop a workshop to teach teenagers why insect biodiversity is important for plant health.
We believe that kids, from a young age, should be taught how to be responsible for their consumption throughout their lives. If children can learn about how their food is grown and where it comes from in an engaging manner, they will be better equipped to make more sustainable choices in the future. We aim to help school teachers encourage this behavior by providing pedagogic tools and hands-on activities to inspire children.
