The Reading Mountains Festival is an occasion for partners around the Alps to organise events to celebrate Alpine literature, languages and cultures under a joint umbrella. On International Mountain Day (11 December) and the days leading to it partners (stakeholders, schools, libraries, interested individuals, restaurants and other interested organisations) are invited to organise their own event highlighting Alpine literature. There are different ways to do so; by organising a reading by a local author, having a presentation of a book taking place in the region or in any other innovative way. Be part of a project promoting the values of the Alpine Convention: protection of the Alpnie region, its sustainable development and its diversity. Emphasise the economic, environmental, social and cultural dimensions of life in the Alps also in your event.
