Towns and villages in bloom for a better quality of life
The goal of the Towns and villages in bloom initiative is above all to improve the quality of life for everyone, to encourage commercial initiatives, to preserve and promote cultural and natural heritage, to energize and reinvent tourist activity thus reviving the local economy in mountain areas. To this end, actions are being carried out and must continue to be built around several themes, in particular those concerning the quality of the welcome, afforded visitors, the protection of the environment and the sense of community.

Environmental issues at the heart of the project
The floral decorations in Luz village are fully in line with environment guidelines: 85% f plants are produced locallywith organic seeds in a local greenhouse.
A lot of thought has been given to how we manage our plant heritage: inventories made of smells and species, species regenerated, use of mown seeds for lawns and ski slopes, tree heritage, respect for old plant strains, enhancement of biodiversity, control of invasive species and encouraging planting at the base of building fronts.
