Carbon Connects comes to Nantes and Grand-Lieu

14-15 November, AC3A has welcomed the Carbon Connects project partners in Nantes and in Grand-Lieu wetland area to host the second transnational project meeting. Partners were welcomed in the beautiful surroundings of the Maison du Lac of Grand-Lieu in Bouaye by Francois Charruau, the director of the Grand-Lieu catchment area and by Anne-Sophie Boileau, energy and climate project manager from the Chamber of Agriculture of Pays de la Loire. The two speakers have respectively explained the situation on the lake of Grand-Lieu and in its surroundings as well as the role of chambers of agriculture to efficiently accompany farmers via tools provided. The consortium continued on to working together on questions such as pilot site mapping for various parameters and water level monitoring. The first morning of intense collaboration was followed by a study visit to the French peatland pilot site involved in the project, a farm owned by a Michel Coudriau specialized in dairy cattle breeding. On the second day of the meeting, partners have worked in Nantes, the city of dukes, on questions with regard to the transnational implementation of pilot sites by AC3A and business models, as well as communication and long-term effects of the project. Those two days of meeting on paludiculture in the region of Pays de la Loire were highly productive, enriched by interesting knowledge sharing and the general enthusiasm of the group to reach the project’s objectives.
