At the Lycée de la Saussaye in Sur, about a hundred people gathered for three workshops. “The first seminar is devoted to agriculture, a fascinating topic. Participants, mostly farmers, reflect on the so-called agro-ecological infrastructure, as well as unproductive investments in agriculture. In our region, we have arable land, with large plots, and we are wondering about the conservation of biodiversity and its reclamation. This is the case, for example, with the return of partridges to pollinate fields, insects, because without pollination there is no life. Farmers committed to the productive model clearly feel the need to consider biodiversity. What I want, together with my colleagues, is to receive proposals coming from the earth,” explains François Bonnot.

retire within five years.”

The second workshop, which was held in Source and also under the Maison de Dreux, is dedicated to the transfer of a company, whether agricultural, artisanal or commercial. “It should be remembered that 40% of business leaders will retire in the next five years. And in the transfer and acquisition market, only a third of companies will be transferred and absorbed when their leader retires.
