There is no plan bee wants to answer a question: “What can Design do for bees crisis?” The question finds its response once formulated to a beekeeper interviewed at the beginning stage of my thesis. He simply replied: “Nothing. Design can’t do anything”. This unexpected response showed a profound truth: it would not have been possible to help honey bees just with a Design vision based on a single product. It would have been necessary to redesign a whole system to create an inter-species collaboration to support biodiversity, which is vanishing and being the first cause of the bees descent.
