They snack on our jam sandwiches and are part of the soundtrack to our summer whilst we enjoy a coffee under the apple tree: bees are the industrious workers who provide us with new flowers in spring and a rich harvest in the autumn time. Unfortunately, conditions aren't so favourable for them at the moment: Conventional agriculture, our careless approach to the environment and climate change have led to a worrying global bee mortality rate. We need to do something urgently to reverse this trend! In 2007, 90% of wild bee colonies in the USA disappeared, and in the Middle East the bee population has recently declined by 85%. Furthermore, in Europe, 53% of all wild bees died in recent winters. This has been the result of several factors. On the one hand, modern agriculture leads to the development of monocultures which, in turn, leads to bees suffering from a food supply which isn’t as varied as it should be. Just like us, they also need a balanced diet in order to stay healthy. Another

Good music, good weather and a great atmosphere. It seems like we don’t have a worry in the world when dancing the night away with our friends and camping out underneath the clear night sky. However, this scenario isn't as rosy as it seems. Festivals generate rubbish and require the use of so many resources, meaning that they can cause lasting damage to the environment. The solution is to attend events that are geared towards protecting the environment. We know exactly when and where you’ll find these! Flow Festival in
