The international symposium « Tree avenues – from war to peace » is finished. 110 participants from 4 continents had gathered in Liffol-le-Grand (Vosges county, France). The programme was packed, as 31 speakers from 10 countries took the floor during these two days following the centenary of the Armistice. But the symposium proceeded fluidly, as it mixed presentations, feedback, a prize giving ceremony and a round table /workshop, not to mention breaks, visits, films and a concert by Angeli Primitivi.
The event was heartily appreciated for the richness of its contents as well as for the quality of the exchanges and the well-thought-out organization : “Local, national, and international focus and context, with lots of food for thought.” “I learnt an enormous amount from the presentations and over coffee and our meals together. “ “interesting and moving” ”Huge thanks to you and all the team for excellent organisation, hospitality and a most enjoyable and interesting, I hope too successful symposium.”
