Christophe’s presentation draws from his work as Project Manager for the nomination in 2012 of the Landscape of Grand Pré to the World Heritage List. It will deal more specifically with the different layers of values attributed to this place by the communities that have inhabited it, and the manner in which these were negotiated through the nomination process. The presentation will be given in English and followed by a bilingual discussion.
