Enjoy a short with the family
In the animated film Blue honey, a bee discovers a blue liquid after being put away from its hive. To be reinstated, she offers it to her community, which begins to forage for it. This incredible liquid will turn out to be polluting and invade his hive. A true story, which occurred among beekeepers in Haut-Rhin in 2012, nicely transcribed to educate young and old about ecology. In the running for Takorama, a children’s short film festival, this film is available online for free until June 25. In total, 15 animation courts on the theme of solidarity, divided into four age categories, are accessible and subject to children’s votes.
Does work divide people? Can we free ourselves from our culture? Do we have to demonstrate to know?

Better understand hunger in the world
For the fourth year in a row, the number of hungry families in the world is on the rise, with an estimated 690 million malnourished people led by Yemen, South Sudan and northern Nigeria. The Covid-19 has not helped, closing our borders and slowing international aid. Why does hunger in the world still exist? How to slow it down, or even eradicate it? On the occasion of the International Day against Hunger, June 15, the websites of NGOs such as Action Against Hunger, Oxfam France or the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization are enlightening.

Remake the match
Let’s go for 30 days of football with the launch, on June 11, of Euro 2020, postponed to this summer because of the pandemic. To decipher and analyze the matches, we selected the serious and entertaining Evening Team, from the venerable daily of the same name, which reacts before and after the match with its former footballers and journalists debating around a plateau. In a less traditional register, the youtubeur Wiloo brilliantly aims to popularize football culture on his channel created in 2017.
