AlpWeek Conference Renewable Alps

For the first time in the history of the Alpine Convention, the conference of ministers from its signatory states will take place during the AlpWeek. By holding these events at the same time, the Swiss Presidency of the Alpine Convention is sending a signal, bringing together all states and organisations engaged in the Alpine space. AlpWeek is the right place and time to meet, as it is organised by many of the observers of the Alpine Convention. We hope that Poschiavo will see the emergence of a new spirit of pan-alpine and cross-border cooperation. This cooperation will be successful only if it is focused on specific targets. One of the most important of these is the economic, social and ecological renewal of the Alpine space, with a particular emphasis on sustainable development.

The theme of AlpWeek – “Renewable Alps” – is an invitation to use the wealth of opportunity presented by Poschiavo to explore the renewability of the Alps together with those who live there, as well as experts from government, planning, science and civil society.
