“What is bionics?”, “What does a maple seed have in common with a helicopter?” and “What should the future means of transportation be?” - the participants have been tackling these and similar questions in the school competition run by the Audi Environmental Foundation in collaboration with the internet platform wissen.de.
In recent years, there has been a dramatic depletion of bee populations. There are many reasons for this. The reasons include the increase in numbers of varroa mites in beehives, a lack of food supply or the increasing use of pesticides. In addition, there is a lack of young beekeepers, who can take on this problem.

The Audi Environmental Foundation supports a project of the Fachzentrums (FZ) Bienen (Bee Research Center) at the Bayerischen Landesanstalt für Weinbau und Gartenbau (LWG) (Bavarian State Institute for Viticulture and Horticulture) in the promotion of beekeeping in schools. The project is aimed at schools that do not keep bees yet.
The Jackdaw was once strongly represented in Bavaria – in the meantime, however, its populations are under serious threat. With the support of the Audi Environmental Foundation, this trend is now to be reversed.
Cultural landscape does not exclude species protection! This is the objective of the innovative environmental education project, which was developed over 4 years.
Playful and multimedia-based - this is the best way to convey even more complex content. The Audi Environmental Foundation supports the Steigerwald Centre for Forest Education with such exhibits.
Plastic waste is a major problem worldwide. At a film evening, the Audi Environmental Foundation is discussing about plastic pollution and plastic recycling ideas.
Audi and we4bee start project on behavioural analysis of bees. Beehives transmit huge amounts of data (Big Data) on environmental influences.
Every year, around 10 million tonnes of plastic waste finds its way into our oceans. As a result, thousands upon thousands of marine animals perish. Together with Clear Rivers from Rotterdam, the Audi Environmental Foundation is committed to reducing plastic waste in waterways.
The bee research by we4bee and supported by the Audi Environmental Foundation has collected billions of individual data points so far. The first scientific findings are now available.
Nature conservation and biological diversity – this is what the Audi Environmental Foundation has stood for for a decade with a large number of projects.
The Audi Environmental Foundation is financially supporting a study dealing with restoration and protection of peatlands, the feasibility study “CO₂-Regio”, which is developing a catalog of economically attractive, alternative uses for farmers.
