During our international workshop “Wildlife and winter sport activities” in the Bauges regional nature park in March 2016, the participants have expressed a strong wish to elaborate a common communication strategy. In the frame of the project WeWild - We respect Alpine wildlife -, ALPARC aims at developing – for the protected areas of the Alps –a joint communication strategy and awareness-raising tools in order to reduce the impact of winter sport practitioners on wildlife in the Alps. The aim of the project is to send out a joint awareness-raising message to winter outdoor practitioners in the Alps in order to give greater momentum to local and regional initiatives.

Alparc coordinates the project and pursues a participatory approach, involving protected area staff and other stakeholders. A first workshop will take place in March 23 and 24 in Vorarlberg (AT). The aim of this first meeting is share experiences in awareness-raising campaigns and to elaborate the contents of the joint strategy (see programme attached). A second workshop will take place in November 2017 in the Italian Alps (to be confirmed). The workshop is open to experts from the Alpine protected areas and other stakeholders, such as Alpine clubs, environmental NGOs and regional governments.

The project will also develop awareness-raising tools that are free to use and share (available from January 2018). The project will use partnerships with the private sector, festivals and sporting events to disseminate the tools and to implement the communication strategy in the medium run. A final conference in November 2018 will bring further momentum to our initiative, presenting the results and gathering a large number of Alpine stakeholders around the topic.

The project is supported by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment (BMUB). For more information and in order to register for the workshop, please contact us directly.

22 Memorial Danilo Re: a winter’s tale

The 2017 edition of the international Memorial Danilo Re, the official games for Alpine protected area rangers and protected area staff, took place from January 26 to 28 in the Gesäuse National park in Styria (Austria). In fairy tale-like winter conditions, more than 150 participants from Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland and Slovenia competed in four disciplines in the small sport resort of Kaiserau close to Admont. As every year, the event also was the occasion for rangers, park staff and directors to meet, exchange and network.


Memorial Danilo Re as good start for the Austrian presidency of the Alpine Convention
After the traditional parade of the teams accompanied by torch light and traditional Styrian music through the streets of Admont, the Secretary General of the Alpine Convention Markus Reiterer, in the name of the Alpine states, warmly welcomed the 36 teams and their supporters. For Austria, which took over the presidency of the Alpine Convention in October 2016, Günter Liebel of the Federal Ministry for the Environment highlighted the radiant character of the event for the start of the presidency period. Both officials underlined the importance of the Memorial Danilo Re as unique and connecting event in the Alps, that perfectly communicates the joint efforts to preserve this valuable natural and cultural space that are the Alps to the greater public.


Platform for exchange: seminar on the nature interpretation approach
The Memorial Danilo Re has for years provided an optimal platform for the exchange of those employees from the Alpine protected areas who are responsible for monitoring, education and knowledge transfer. A broad professional task field, which is not only challenging, but also vital to man and nature. Within the framework of the memorial, expertise, exchange and dialogue are combined and bundled. This year, the focus of the seminar laid on a contemporary education and knowledge transfer method, the nature interpretation approach.


The Danilo Re Trophy: overall victories for Germany (men) and Austria (women)
Giant slalom, cross-country skiing and shooting - these are not only the disciplines that form the core of Olympic winter games, but also precisely the sports - supplemented by ski mountaineering - within which the participants were able to compete. Similar to the Olympic spirit, participation and joy stood in the foreground of the games, which offered a challenge for all.

The overall victory went to Nationalpark Berchtesgaden (DE, Team 2), followed by Parc Naziunal Svizzer (CH, Team 1) and the mixed team Parco Nazionale Gran Paradiso (IT)/Parc National de la Vanoise (FR). For the ladies, Nationalpark Hohe Tauern (AT, Team 2) was able to defend its title ahead of Nationalpark Berchtesgaden (DE, Team 1) and Parco dell’ Adamello (IT, Team 2). The team from Berchtesgaden is therefore well prepared for the 23rd edition of the Danilo Re Trophy in 2018, which will take place in their National Park.

A big thank you to all the 36 teams who took part in this 22nd edition, and special thanks to the team of the Nationalpark Gesäuse and the other local organizers for making the event happen in perfect conditions. See you all, hopefully, in Berchtesgaden (DE) in January 2018.

Triglavski narodni park (SI) and Parco Naturale Prealpi Giulie (IT) in the Julian Alps are both founding members of ALPARC. Transboundary cooperation between the two parks dates back to 1996. In the following years common EU projects reinforced the partnership and in 2009, the transboundary Julian Alps Ecoregion, which also includes Slovenia’s Julian Alps MAB UNESCO Area, was officially awarded the EUROPARC Transboundary Certificate. In 2014, the transboundary cooperation was re-awarded; in the same year, the region has been declared Official Pilot Region for Ecological Connectivity of the Alpine Convention.

Recently, another milestone in transboundary cooperation has been achieved. On the 7th of Decembre, the protected area managements were officially awarded with the European Charter for sustainable tourism certificate in Brussels. This successful application makes the Julian Alps Ecoregion Europe’s first transboundary park holding this certificate. Both, the Triglav national park and the Prealpi Giulie nature park see the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism in Protected Areas as an extraordinary opportunity to develop their region sustainably.

In the frame of InnovAlps project and during this last year and a half, ALPARC has been committed in parks regional development in the Alps. During on-sites visits and workshops in three pilot regions, skills and experiences of local actors coming from parks, politics, tourism and local development were rallied and were able to exchange. InnovAlps has also presented a panel of initiatives of innovating local development, all characterized by novelty, risks-taking, valorization and cooperation between protected areas technical teams and other local actors. The project was closed by a final conference in the Regional Nature Park Pfyn-Finges (Switzerland) last September. In the final report, ALPARC has summarized project results and has formulated political recommendations for an improvement of the innovating capacity in the alpine parks territories.

On the basis of these results, ALPARC currently develop ideas or projects for a continuation in the “Regional development and life quality” focusing on, for instance, sustainable tourism or short circuits. In addition, ALPARC think about proceeding to work with an actor network of local development and enhance exchanges between alpine parks territories.


ALPARC is particularly thankful to the three pilot regions of InnovAlps project and their actors for their commitment, the interest they have shown in this project. ALPARC also thanks Austrian, Swiss, and French parks federations for their collaboration in this project. This project has been financed by Swiss federal office of the Environment.

V času Alpskega tedna in Alpske konference so predstavniki mreže zavarovanih območij v Alpah ALPARC nemški zvezni ministrici za okolje Dr. Barbari Hendricks in uradnemu predstavništvu avstrijskega predsedstva Alpske konvencije predali dokument s političnimi zahtevami za prihodnost alpskih zavarovanih območij.

Člani in članice mreže ALPARC so dotični dokument z naslovom The future of Protected Areas in the Alps - Political Demands (Prihodnost zavarovanih območij v Alpah. Politične zahteve) zasnovali v sklopu obeleževanja 20. obletnice delovanja omenjene nevladne organizacije. Vsebina dokumenta temelji na šestih zahtevah, ki so ključnega pomena za alpska zavarovana območja pri zagotavljanju trajnega in uspešnega uresničevanja njihovega poslanstva na področju varstva narave, zaščite krajine in trajnostnega razvoja.

Dokument je objavljen spodaj v obliki PDF v angleščini in vseh alpskih jezikih.

The poster collection "Bilder der Innovation - Images de l'innovation 2016" highlights innovations in regional development in protected areas of the Alps.It presents 17 innovative approaches which were identified in the InnovAlps project (2015-2016) in national and regional/nature parks in France, Switzerland and Austria.

A focus lies on innovations in the InnovAlps pilot regions: the regional nature parks Tiroler Lech, Pfyn-Finges and the Baronnies provençales. Obviously, the posters only represent a tiny part of innovations in peripheral areas of the Alps. The collection is thus more a sort of a starting point, providing lots of free space for new posters and opening a new way to communicate innovations in protected areas.

Mednarodna mreža zavarovanih območij v Alpah ALPARC je v okviru projekta InnovAlps tri pilotne regije, ki slovijo pa narodnih parkih, nagradila za  inovativnost in prizadevanja  za trajnostni razvoj v soju regionalnega razvoja. Na zaključni konferenci, ki se je med 29. in 30. septembrom 2016 odvijala v kraju Leuk-Susten v kantonu Valais v Švici, so bili Tirolski naravni park Lech (Avstrija), Regijski naravni park Baronnies Provençales (Francija) in Regijski naravni park Pfyn-Finges (Švica) kot predstavniki prvih treh v projekt vključenih regij odlikovani za celostne strategije in inovativne projekte, usmerjene k trajnostnemu razvoju na regionalni ravni.

Zaključne konference v švicarskem Regionalnem naravnem Naturpark Pfyn-Finges, zadnjega uradnega dejanja v okviru projekta, se je udeležilo 25 predstavnikov in predstavnic alpskih zavarovanih območij iz štirih alpskih držav. Udeleženci in udeleženke so imeli v okviru sklepne delavnice priložnost za neposredno izmenjavo izkušenj in primerov dobre prakse iz vsakokratne regije, predstavili pa so tudi projektne rezultate.

Na zaključni konferenci je bila predstavljena zbirka posterjev "Bilder der Innovation - Images de l'innovation 2016", ki so bili ustvarjeni v teku projekta. Zbirka predstavlja 17 inovacij regionalnega razvoja v alpskih zavarovanih območjih.

21. in 22. junija 2016 je v Regijskem naravnem parku Baronnies provençales potekala trinajsta in zadnja delavnica za izmenjavo v okviru projekta InnovAlps. Gorski masiv Baronnies, med južnimi Alpami in Provanso, se nahaja na stičišču alpskih in provansalskih vplivov. Znan je po svojih bogati in raznovrstni lokalni proizvodnji, po odprtih pokrajinah, po značilni gradbeni in kmetijski dediščini, pa tudi po svoji geološki zgradbi in biotski raznovrstnosti.

Park, ki se nahaja na tem obširnem in izrazito ruralnem območju (polovica občin nima več kot 100 prebivalcev), predstavlja izhodišče za številne pobude razvoja kmetijstva in usklajuje razne inovativne dejavnosti v sodelovanju s široko mrežo lokalnih deležnikov. Tako slednji, kot tudi upravitelji parka, so med junijsko delavnico imeli možnost izraziti svoja razmišljanja. Podčrtali so pomen, ki ga ima dokument o razvoju parka: v smislu strategije in vodila za delovanje v smeri trajnostnega, ekonomskega in solidarnega razvoja. V prizadevanju za oživitev tega območja so si deležniki med seboj izmenjali mnenja o ključnem vprašanju preureditve ekonomije na osnovi krajevnih virov. Gre zlasti za razvoj in pospeševanje raznolikega in kakovostnega gorskega kmetijstva. V masivu Baronnies je kmetijstvo ključni gospodarski sektor, ki zaposluje 18 % za delo zmožnega prebivalstva.

Ena izmed inovativnih pobud v tem pogledu je bila vzpostavitev mreže okrog petdesetih proizvajalcev, obrtnikov in trgovcev. Njen namen je bil izboljšati komercializacijo proizvodov s tega območja in olajšati preskrbo. Leta 2013 se je ta mreža dobila konkretnejšo obliko z ustanovitvijo društva "Circuits courts en Baronnies Provençales". V sodelovanju z naravnim parkom je bila ustvarjena spletna prodajalna. Poleg tega, da so se na ta način med seboj povezali proizvajalci in kupci, se je z vzpostavitvijo prevzemnih mest izboljšala tudi logistika na tem obširnem ozemlju. Člani društva jamčijo za kakovost svojih proizvodov s podpisom skupnega dokumenta in z uradnimi certifikati (ZOP, ZGO, AB itd.).

Med delavnico so bili omenjeni še nekateri drugi projekti, med drugim: razvoj turističnih ponudb s poudarkom na opazovanju nočnega neba; vzgoja k ozemeljski odgovornosti v smislu varovanja naravne in kulturne dediščine; pospeševanje novih oblik dela in življenja, kot je coworking. Poddirektorica parka Gilberte Bremond je poudarila, da imajo regijski naravni parki v Franciji izrecno inovativno poslanstvo: "izvajati eksperimentalne ali eksemplarične dejavnosti". Inovativnost mora biti tako rekoč "zapisana v njihovih genih". Na podlagi teh izkušenj iz pogorja Baronnies so udeleženci iz Švice in Avstrije lahko zbirali zamisli, ki bi jih lahko uresničili na svojih območjih. Vse tri delavnice projekta InnovAlps so bile dragocena priložnost za medsebojno izmenjavo.

Projekt InnovAlps se bliža zaključku

Projekt InnovAlps je namenjen iskanju novih pristopov in alternativnih načinov razvoja na zavarovanih območjih. Tri pilotne regije, ki imajo status regijskega naravnega parka, so sodelovale pri čezmejnih izmenjavah o inovacijah. Predstavile so svoje pobude na področju turizma, ovrednotenja lokalne proizvodnje, okoljske vzgoje in – nekoliko širše – medsebojnega sodelovanja različnih deležnikov določenega ozemlja.

Zadnji dogodek projekta InnovAlps bo zaključna konferenca 29. in 30. septembra 2016, ki bo odprta za vse zainteresirane. Srečanje bo potekalo v Regijskem naravnem parku Pfyn-Finges v kantonu Valais v Švici. Konferenca z naslovom Alpine Nature Parks – Models for Change” si bo prizadevala pospeševati teritorialne inovacije v alpskih zavarovanih območjih, tako da bo predstavila pobude, ki so bile izbrane v teku projekta. Dogodek bo hkrati tudi priložnost za razpravo o prihodnjih dejavnostih mreže ALPARC v okviru delovnega področja "regionalni razvoj".
