  • Why bumblebees are silent, or how to learn the invisible..

    Thanks to science, we know more and more about nature, more and more deeply and in detail. At the same time, we have probably never been so alienated and distant from the nature that contains us. I try to discuss the topics of how education and living arrangements increasingly separate us from nature, and at the same time, with the help of good education, we can overcome this gap. How could people once again learn to notice the invisible and imperceptible in nature?
