“The Chamonix of today is neither France nor a foreign land; it’s an enclave quite unlike any other in the world. 12,000 people live year-round in the Chamonix Valley, of 70 different nationalities, cultures, traditions and languages. That’s chamoniard! The town that was traditionally rural has increased in diversity: the English, Swedes and all the other new arrivals have enabled Chamonix to take a fresh look at itself, making it a more attractive place, in particular as regards the quality of services available. The aim now is to bring all these communities together and make them think in groups about what each and every one of us can do to make the valley a greener place. This also involves permaculture. “

“You really shouldn’t miss the small glacial lakes just below the Mer de Glace. Leaving the path after a hike, you walk down through the scree. Once at the bottom, you can see the stones streaming down from all directions. That’s when you realise that the mountain really is alive. It all looks very calm from the valley, but when you’re there, there’s no doubt… it’s alive! “
