The consortages de bisses emerged in Valais during the Middle Ages around the management of common resources such as water, mountain pastures or forests.
The current and future challenges related to natural resources have revived interest in this collective governance, in which the users manage the common goods.
The exhibition “CONSORTAGES: Together, what future for our past? ” offers a historical journey into the world of these consortia, to discover their origins, understand their current reality and imagine their future.
The exhibition is accompanied by a programme of activities and a scientific publication
