The report of the fourth AlpWeek, held in October 2016 in Grassau (D), has been published. The focus of the AlpWeek was on demography, culture and quality of life.
Furthermore, in the frame of the event a video titled “What about cooperation in the Alps?” has been made. Via several interviews with key actors involved in the Alps-wide cooperation, the video presents how the Alpine cooperation works, and identifies the actors involved as well as the challenges and opportunities. The video is available in English and in all Alpine languages on the AlpWeek Youtube channel.
ALPARC had a strong presence through its actions: in the frame of the Alpine Convention’s work group for ecological connectivity, two new pilot regions were nominated, Achental (D) and Mont-Blanc Ecoregion (FR), a workshop dedicated to the pilot regions: “Development of a short- to mid-term strategy for the pilot regions”, was organised, and a cooperation memorandum was signed between ALPARC, DANUBEPARKS (Danube network of protected areas) and CNPA (network of protected areas of the Carpathians).
To better promote the project and ecological connectivity, three videos have been made; they’re available on our YouTube channel.
