Last Friday, we were invited in Pozières, in Northern France, wellknown to Australians and Brits because of the costly fightings that took place in the area in 1916. There is a project of planting a memorial avenue, and we are happy of this outcome of our symposium "Tree avenues - from war to peace". ALLÉES-AVENUES /allées d'avenir/ was invited at this meeting with main officials, who showed their great interest in this project. Our managing director Chantal Pradines could explain why planting trees along a main road is not a road safety issue (just check the studies).
You missed the symposium? The texts and the powerpoints of the presentations are online here.
Eventually, it will also be possible to watch the videos online. The french ones are already partially available here.
Of course, the experience of the amazing concert by Angeli Primitivi (José Lepiez and Patricia Châtelain), and all the opportunities of exchange which largely enhanced the programme will remain out of the scope of what can be shared online.
So, next time, you'd better be with us, hadn't you ?
