The Gymnasium promotes all positive values that enrich interpersonal relations between students, teachers, parents and the environment in which they live.

Association

Peuples & Nature

Job Title

Association

Info

Peuples & Nature is a young association founded in France by adventure tourism professionals and travel enthusiasts, eager to incorporate all their ethics into their profession and their peregrinations.
Their values: prioritize the respect of the living, maximize local economic benefits, encourage encounters between cultures, offer unique destinations, choose soft mobility, propose ecological and coherent formulas

Accordo di Stewardhip

The Peuples & Nature association has set up “LUPUS”, a series of field trips on the theme of the wolf. The objective is to bring basic knowledge about the species to elementary school children in the Vercors region, to “demystify” it and to talk more broadly about the great French fauna, while giving children the opportunity to spend time outdoors in winter, to discover snowshoeing and mountain nature.
The document “Non-consumptive use of wolves in tourism: guidelines for responsible practices” has been elaborated in the framework of the LIFE WOLFALPS EU project. It has been reviewed and approved by Large Carnivore Initiative for Europe, IUCN/SSC Specialist Group. A French translation is provided by the OFB as the basis for this Stewardship Agreement.
Peuples & Nature would like to take note of these recommendations in order to put them into practice within the framework of the development of a project of thematic nature field trips for adults focused on the wolf.
Peuples & Nature wishes to organize field trips that are both qualitative and adapted to the local context. The idea is simple: a teepee with an easy-to-install stove would be set up for one or two nights in the region (Massif du Vercors) during the winter. From this camp, the participants and the guide would travel for two to three days in search of signs of wildlife.
The aim of this Stewardship agreement is to put into practice the recommendations issued by the LWA EU for responsible tourism and a non-consumptive use of the wolf theme. Regular exchanges will make it possible to appreciate the feasibility and the qualitative contribution of these recommendations to the tourist offers of the association.
