The European Association of Via Francigena Ways (EAVF), beneficiary of the Routes4U mini-grant financed by the European Union, has been conducting work in the Alpine macro-region in which many regions of the Via Francigena are involved: Bourgogne/Franche-Comté; Vaud; Vallese; Valle d’Aosta; Piemonte; Lombardia and Liguria.
The EAVF project is based on the diffusion of a system of governance and “good practices” along the Via in order to incite replicability in the whole macro-region, this would then guarantee the enhancement of the Alpine environment and its values.
The following activities were shared in Romainmotier:
