Today, at the Juno Beach Centre, the Normandy Region organized the founding general assembly of the association for the governance of the “Landing beaches” as part of the project to have the D-Day beaches added on the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites. A very large number of elected representatives, institutions and actors of tourism then attended an event on the Beach: the capture by a drone of a souvenir photo of the event in the presence of pupils from the Gilbert Boulanger school of Courseulles-sur-Mer.
A day in the wind in every sense of the word!
