Abstract. The main goal of this project was to alert the general public to the problem of bee decline. The originality of this project was to construct three “bee villages” in three different campus in Mons, Brussels and Gent. These villages included structures for nesting and plantations for food resources. Many events were organized to visit the villages and the associated wild bees.
