Looking back to 2021, the EU stories never stopped growing stronger in France, not only in Bordeaux, but also in Nice. We organized two events to inspire actors in eco-tourism and give them concrete tools.
TOUR AND OPENING NIGHT IN BORDEAUX
It was the afternoon of 02/11 that we started to explore Bordeaux Bastide with our partner Alternative Urban, a local association that hold local tour to enhance the recognition of Bordeaux. Wondering in the old district of this City of Wine, the statue of General Toussaint L’ouverture which memories the abolition of slavery, Old shipyards which have been converted into restaurants. Stories of the local guide made the history of Bordeaux revive again， showing that a meaningful tour is more than just enjoying the beautiful scenery.
The walk was followed by an evening at La Fabrique Pola for the opening of the Interactive work of Guillaumit Mit and 2ROQS.
This event aimed at highlighting the results of this project, around the narration of neighborhoods by their inhabitants, sustainable tourism and cultural works that tell differently the territories.
