Meetings with inhabitants

ECOHOMY challenge to multiplicate meetings with inhabitants of 3 rural territories:

  • Baume and Drobie Valley in Ardèche (France),

  • Dryanovo region in the Rhodopes (Bulgaria),

  • the Val Venosta region in South Tyrol (Italy).

These meetings are intergenerational and real (no visio!): they are undertaken by young Europeans (French, Bulgarian, Italian) between the ages of 18 and 30. Curious about what rural life may have been in the past, about what it has become or what it will become in the future, these young people, supervised by the ECOHOMY team, set out on a quest for stories, stories, songs or legends.

Access to the blog which retraces the encounters with excerpts of life history, song and legend:

All interviews are recorded and a reflection on the archiving work is under way with the Phonotheque of Heritage Sonores ofAuvergne Rhône Alpes :
