As part of the activities of the UNESCO Chair "Rivers and Heritage: natural and cultural diversity of river landscapes", this workshop is being organised at Angers University on Tuesday 7 and Wednesday 8 July 2015 to take stock of current research on the chair's theme and provide an initial discussion forum for researchers from the partner universities. The workshop is intended for academics, young researchers, professors, lecturers and students as well as the many professionals involved in water and environment management and development (local authorities, water management and development plans [SAGE], nature parks, federations and international organisations).
On 9 April 2015, a partnership agreement was signed at Chambord between the National Estate of Chambord and the City Palace of Udaipur, managed by the Maharana of Mewar Charitable Foundation. This is the first cooperation project between the Loire Valley and Rajasthan. Developing exchanges between the Loire Valley châteaux and Rajasthan’s palaces was a shared wish, jointly expressed by Laurent Fabius, France’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, and the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
To mark the “1515-2015 – Francis I, the Renaissance in the Loire Valley” cultural season, Doulce Mémoire, an ensemble specialising in ancient music that has been active in Tours for over 25 years, has just brought out a book/CD providing a real feast of music composed for a king – Francis I, the patron prince who well understood how much music could serve his policy of prestige.
On 11 December 2014, the Europarc Federation awarded the Park the certificate validating its candidacy for the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism (ECST). Incorporation of sustainable development at all levels of tourism activity is a challenge to be met, providing opportunities for professional actors to stand out from the crowd while meeting ever an increasing demand for authenticity and unspoiled nature.
