Held under the slogan “Alps & People”, the fourth edition of AlpWeek was dedicated to the many aspects of the connections between the Alps and the people who live, work and spend their spare time there.

The AlpWeek report is now available in the four Alpine languages and English on the event website. This report includes a short summary on the outcomes of the event for each of the three topics:  demography, culture and quality of life.

It also opens perspectives for the next AlpWeek.

We invite you to have a look at it and promote it to your networks.

As developed in the conclusions, ambitious political strategies must be developed, to find convincing solutions to the challenges faced by the Alpine society. These can be developed from the initiatives of civil society and of local and regional administrative bodies, then further promoted through co-operation and networking. This will require a political and social dialogue, as sought by various alpine stakeholders, amongst which the Alpine Convention, the Alpine Space programme and numerous civil society organisations. With its open character and highly differing exchange opportunities, the AlpWeek offered a chance for such a dialogue.


AlpWeek was jointly organised by:

Alliance in the Alps; Alpine Convention; Alpine Space programme; Association Alpine Town of the Year; CIPRA International; Club Arc Alpin (CAA); ISCAR Alpine Research; Ökomodell Achental.

With the financial support of:

German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety; Bavarian State Ministry for the Environment and Consumer Protection.
