A day at the museum to "think and act" on the climate emergency. Sunday 1 October from 10.15 am to 6 pm.

Facing the environmental emergency, "Meetings to reflect and act".

Through this series of meetings "to think and act" we wish to address with you the issues of the climate emergency through the prism of the specificities of MEG. By addressing themes such as care, repair, food, clothing, or the transmission of knowledge and know-how, we wish to make perceptible the impact that our daily actions can have on the environment and thus question our relationship with it.
By collaborating with you and people who are active and committed to climate and environmental issues, by interviewing experts, artists, representatives of indigenous peoples, or even craftspeople and creative people, we propose a program of activities that provide practical tools for action and reflection, accessible and useful to all.
At this meeting we will be looking at bees: the presence of Apis mellifera, formerly known as the "honey fly", has been attested in Europe for at least 8,500 years. Despite this long history of companionship, the bee is not a domestic animal. Until the 19th century, the beehive was seen as an ideal for the human community. This is no longer the case today, because we are questioning the place of the individual in society in a different way, but this does not prevent the bee from being symbolically valued. We now know that bees are essential pollinators, and that their disappearance would have catastrophic consequences on a global scale. We are fascinated by their communication skills and their ability to transform ephemeral flowers into a bounty that never fades.
