Activities are specially organized for children too...
The film festival, now at the very heart of these meetings, is considered as a national and even more significant event where associations come to meet a general public, local and public authorities open to engage in dialogue around environmental issues.
The Ménigoute Festival objective is double : enlighten and promote initiatives for a better knowledge of nature and of its best management, respectful of the environment ; to be a reference in terms of dialogue whenever environmental policies are concerned.
