No future without bees?
They secure our food
We could live in a paradise where insects, especially bees, pollinate fragrant oceans of flowers whose fruits we harvest. Instead, gravel fields are now displacing flower gardens and agriculture is characterised by monocultures. Pesticides and climate change are also causing insects to die off – with dramatic consequences for the global ecosystem. Honey is just one of the many foodstuffs that will no longer be available to us.
A graphic novel that inspires not only reflection but also action.
The young German illustrator Hanna Harms visualises the many aspects of the situation in poetic images – relentlessly honest. She has already won the Ginco Award in the category “Best Non Fiction Comic” with her debut Milk Without Honey. Bee expert Prof. Dr. Jürgen Tautz places the situation of these animals, which are so important to us, in a larger context with an epilogue.
