This is a strong symbolic time orientated to the young people with “rendezvous” in the mountains in places such as shelters or peaks, at the same time in all Alpine countries (important symbolic dimension through notions of light, shelter, simultaneity of the event beyond the borders). The project targets youth groups formed or not, formal or informal, between 6 and 25 years old.


It is time to register for the 2016 edition that will be held from the 12th to 13th of July 2016 by returning the form (available for download below) before March 15th.

By sending this form you do not commit to anything but you simply express your motivation to participate in the 2016 edition of Youth at the top.

If you are a manager of a protected area and/or if you know youth groups interested or if you are yourself part of a group of young people, do not hesitate to contact us for more information and assistance in assembling your project. Participation is free, with the possibility of a financial support for some expenses for members of ALPARC (subject to special conditions).
