Following last spring’s encounters, Mission Val de Loire has suggested holding further discussion days. Aimed specifically at mediation professionals, guide lecturers, tourist office guides and the like, they are set to be organised around a cocktail buffet lunch – an ideal occasion for exchanging viewpoints – with morning sessions for everybody and afternoons reserved for the most highly motivated participants. The encounters will take place on Tuesday 15 April in Beaugency and Thursday 17 April 2014 in Saumur.

The Loire Valley’s inscription on the World Heritage List is of major importance in mobilising stakeholders in the valley’s future, and the site is now provided with a Management Plan. Implementation of the latter’s Guideline VIII – Fostering appropriation of the inscription’s values – is a subject well worth sharing with all actors involved in cultural and heritage mediation. 

This is why Mission Val de Loire is organising these Professional Encounters between Mediators: 

  • Tuesday 15 April 2014 • Théâtre du Puits Manu • BEAUGENCY
  • Thursday 17 April 2014 • Duplessis-Mornay Room • SAUMUR Town Hall
