CNRS manages the ZAPVS LTER in France, and is organizing participative activities for the public to learn about the important role of pollination
On April 25th 2018, students from a local primary school visited two farmers at their fields. The farmers introduced the children to their farming activity and three CNRS representatives were present to explain the role of pollinators in the production of oilseeds. Students participated in an experimental workshop to study pollination. The results of the experimental workshop will be presented to the farmers by this same class of schoolchildren during a science festival in October 2018.
