During the opening of the conference Mrs. Małgorzata Steckiewicz and Mrs. Magdalena Wątorska-Dec from the Polish Tourism Development Agency gave a presentation on the B2N project as an example of successful international cooperation in the tourism sector.

Later on some of the good practices identified from the study visits to Auvergne region (France), Ourense province (Spain) and Alto Tamega region (Portugal) were presented. The presentation on the B2N project awoke a lot of interest among the participants, since it provided practical solutions and innovative ideas which could be transferred into Polish territories.

The second week of October was the chosen date to carry out the 2nd study visit of the B2N project. This time the study visit took place in Spain and Portugal. More than twenty representatives from the eleven Project partners visited the province of Ourense in Spain and the Alto Tâmega region in Portugal. These two bordering areas are separated by a mountainous natural border that has become a natural park on both sides being one of the few natural parks in Europe that includes two countries.


PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION: Dans les yeux, dans les eaux

Monday, 25 October 2010 20:16

Nature creates countless images of itself: shadows, mirages, optical illusions, reflections in the water. Water is one of the most fascinating mirrors to be reflected into: it softens edges; it makes the visible evasive, seizing eternity; it unveils extraordinary light effects.

Fondation Grand Paradis – partner institution in the B2N project - invites you to participate in this competition; capture the reflected images in the mountain waters, where the peaks, the animals, the pastures and the clouds multiply offering us continuously shifting shapes.
