What can we learn from the cooperative world of bees?

DESCRIPTION

Visit a bee conservation and honey production farm that was created to employ people with mental functional diversity. These employees help take care of the bees and are also co-guides for the visitors. During the visit, the participants will reflect on similarities between the organization of the bees’ colony and the company’s organization; this will contribute to your company’s strategic reflections.

After visiting the honeycomb panels, you will eat a delicious paella dish. The bee farm is 40 minutes away from Barcelona where you can enjoy awesome Mediterranean sea views.
