Let’s build an insect house

Building insect houses for your balcony and for the park. The coexistence of people and insects in cities is a major topic nowadays. Recently there has been a boom in insect houses within urban areas – both in public spaces and on private balconies. Insect houses provide a very important refuge for many species of solitary bees and wasps which are non-aggressive and are of key importance for urban biodiversity. The sculptor Jan Šnéberger will show you how to make an insect house, which you can then take home and install on your own balcony. You can also make an insect house for the park itself (with an educational sign). Artists Marcela Lysáčková and Max Lysáček will run a children’s workshop about solitary bees and wasps and how they are important for urban life.
