Team building activities - Alvéole
  • Engage your tenants and team with innovative team building activities

    Honey bees have a superpower: they’re incredible at bringing people together, fostering child-like curiosity, and allowing for deeper conversations about sustainability. To facilitate the connection between humans, honey bees, nature, and cities, we’re constantly creating new conferences and activities aimed at building a bridge between people and the beekeeping project, whether in person or online.

Answers to your questions!
  • Why are workshops and activities part of every Alvéole experience?

    Educational workshops and team-building activities are a powerful vehicle for education, especially when connected to a hive. After a workshop, participants become mobilized spokespeople for bees, urban beekeeping and pollinators, as well as your urban beekeeping initiative. 

  • What are workshops like?

    Depending on the chosen workshop topic and setting (either in-person or virtual), our hour-long workshops can take on different forms. We offer a range of activities, be it conference-style presentations, conversation-style workshops, as well as interactive and (safe!) hands-on activities. What our workshops all have in common are their educational, engaging qualities and upbeat atmosphere. 

  • Do you have online or socially-distant options?

    Determined to offer every opportunity for connection with your beekeeping project, we offer our workshops in a variety of settings, with the safety of both our teams and our partners’ being our utmost priority. We have many engaging online options as well as adapted in-person options, modified for social distancing and safety guidelines.
