Due to the evolving health conditions, the organisation committee has decided to make the event completely virtual. The event is co-organised by Alpine organisations committed to mountain protection and sustainable development and offers a chance for stakeholders from the various Alpine cooperation frameworks to meet. The event will be linked to the Alpine Conference and the EUSALP General Assembly.

This year’s main theme is young people’s views on climate change in the Alps. Climate change is one among many challenges facing the Alpine region. Its impact is particularly acute in the mountains, with the disappearance of glaciers, an increase in natural hazards and temperatures. But how do young people perceive the changes in landscapes and natural environment? The event will give a platform to their thoughts, ideas and solutions. The AlpWeek offers an opportunity to discuss new ways of working and living in the mountains to not only counteract climate change, but also the rural exodus.

It invites not only young people, but also non-profit organisations, politicians, educational institutions, researchers, as well as anyone who lives and works in the Alps to come together and share their ideas and experiences!

The event is free of charge and the registration is open until 1 December.
