"Niort is part of an exceptional natural heritage. It is bordered by valleys, marshes, plains and plateaus. Its edges offer an open horizon, cultivated soil, access to the great landscape, and a relationship with the wild, which we believe constitute the metabolic vitality of the four study sites. We have defined four verbs from the philosophy of life and political ecology to understand the mutation of the sites. Tracking, weaving, gathering, dancing, as 4 stages that accompany the mutation of the sites."
