Since 2008, the Maison de Loire in Anjou has organised these biennials which give the general public the opportunity to sail down the river and to better understand the bonds which tie inhabitants to their river, whether they are at the ends of the Loire or the ends of the earth. For 2012, the Vallée Loire Authion Community of Communes is getting involved in the organisation of the event with the aim of making it a real cultural and festive meeting point for those who live here and for tourists who have come to explore the area.
VINIFLORE 2011 will be held on Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 November at the Edgard Pisani wine school (Montreuil-Bellay) and around 2,000 visitors are expected. Wines from different agricultural colleges, not just from every wine growing region of France, but also from some European wine growing regions, are offered for tasting and sale by students studying wine growing, making and tasting at the school.
This document created by Mission Val de Loire seeks to bring to light coherent principles for development of the municipality of Mopti in Mali, based on the findings of urban analyses carried out during the “Territorial management of and preservation of heritage in river corridors” project concerning the Niger and Mekong Rivers, and in part during the “Niger Loire: governance and culture” project. The work relied on a participative process at the Municipality’s invitation, and it is to be hoped that it will be continued, based on the proposals for plans and scenarios put forward.
The World Heritage Committee’s annual session took place in Paris at the end of June 2011. The Committee was invited by the French State, the Association of French World Heritage Sites and the Centre and Pays de la Loire regions to visit the listed Val de Loire site on 26 June 2011.
To wind up the European “Niger-Loire: governance and culture” project, a programme of activities kicked off in Bamako (Mali) on 10 May with the inauguration of the exhibition “The Niger – A River and Mankind”. The exhibition, presented at the Mali National Museum in Bamako from 10 May to 31 July 2011, focuses on some of the results of the project implemented by UNESCO from 2007 to 2011 with participation from a wide range of partners, including Mission Val de Loire and the Centre Region.
On Friday 27 May 2011, some hundred people attended the day organised by Mission Val de Loire in partnership with InterLoire and the Loir-et-Cher Chamber of Agriculture. Local authority officials and tourism and viticulture professionals had an opportunity to acquaint themselves with the experience that Val de Loire and its World Heritage vineyards have had in the matter (Vititour network).
