Pastoralism beside water – Die, Pays de la Clairette, Vercors
When the sheep ascend to the hills, the migration is still considered an important ritual tradition and encourages people to celebrate and discover the field of pastoralism.
This year, the Fête de la Transhumance is coming back around and will take place on Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd June. Exploring the theme of water in mountain pastures, the festival offers a diverse program of films, exhibitions, meetings, shows, and of course the famous passing of the sheep through Die !
It is a great opportunity to discover (or rediscover) Die and the Vercors region, but also the various professions and products available, related to sheep breeding. This edition is focusing on water issues, obviously an essential resource for shepherds. It is also a mean to raise awareness about how human activity is affecting natural areas.
Several organisations have gathered together in order to contribute and share their skills, so it is sure to be an informative and meaningful event, both for professionals and the public !
