EPISODE 004 - Minett Trail - Les porteurs de projets ont la parole.
Präsidentin des Gemeindesyndikats ProSud / Présidente du syndicat de communes ProSud
Our Southern Region has a huge amount to offer. From nature via culture and the different people that live here to of course our historic past of the steel industry. That is also the reason for the “Minett Trail” that connects the 11 southern communes together and with which we can really showcase each commune in a fantastic manner by using the walking trail, where all the cycling paths are connected as well and where it is possible to walk 70 km through the beautiful Southern Region, learn about the history and also see the vast nature we have here and that we want to show you.
The “Minett Trail” does not only offer a walking trail, but it also offers the opportunity to spend the night in a great place in each commune. They are guest houses that are very innovative and have not existed as such and are integrated into nature. This can be a train carriage, an old school or even a newbuild, and these guest houses are ecologically integrated into nature.
Under the topic “Remix Nature”, we aim to connect the architecture, through the guest houses and through the fallows, with our historic past and also with nature, both as it was in the past and how it has transformed itself today and how we can show it to you today.
Esch2022 is the European Capital of Culture 2022, featuring the town of Esch-Alzette, the ten other Luxembourg municipalities of the Pro-Sud union and the eight French municipalities of the CCPHVA region. The slogan of Esch2022 is “Remix Culture”. Production work on the implementation of all of the themes is being carried out in close cooperation with the municipalities, the ministries and other partners. Esch2022 is managed by the association ‘Capitale européenne de la culture 2022 asbl’. In 2022, two other cities in Europe will hold this title: Kaunas in Lithuania and Novi Sad in Serbia.
