Smiles are free but they are worth a lot

June 15th is Smile Power Day. Smiles are universal and they are free to share. However, culturally speaking, smiles can mean many different things around the world. For example, in parts of Asia people smile when they are embarrassed. And if you smile too much at people in the former Soviet Union, they will think you are a dishonest person. If you don’t happen to live in the former Soviet Union, spread the joy today with the power of a smile.

This year’s theme touches upon ‘ecosystem restoration’ with a focus on resetting our relation with nature. What does this mean? Working together to reduce the effects of pollution, urban sprawl, and danger to our waterways that threaten to destroy our local ecosystems and native species.

Discover the World of Bees
with Angela Glanzmann and Andie Langemeyer

As many of you know, Oxford offices across Canada have their own beehives along with beekeepers that help them thrive. The hives are managed by our partners Alvéole who install and care for beehives in many urban locations in order to educate, reconnect city-dwellers with nature, raise ecological awareness, and help build more sustainable cities.

To mark Earth Day on April 22, we organized a live event led by two of our beekeepers, Angela and Andie. The event included a 30-minute workshop and a live Q&A.
