Stories about bees (readings for children) and discover a beehive!
Sunday 1 October, 12:00, 15:00, 16:00
A time for listening and sharing about bees, reading area. Foyer. Sunday 1st october, 12 noon, 3pm and 4pm.
For this "Rendez-vous pour réfléchir et agir", we invite you to share a special moment with your children in the heart of MEG, in a reading area created for the purpose by the MEG library team. After reading a bee story, we invite you to discover a beehive that will be brought along for the occasion!
This event takes place on the first Sunday of the month, so it's free and there's no need to register beforehand.
During this event, we'll 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.
