Event ended


Monday 23 November, after Belluno and Munich, Innsbruck played host to the third meeting of the Alpine Convention working group on sustainable tourism.

Experts from different Alpine countries discussed a number of topics, among them, how to identify good practice in tourism, a necessary factor to be considered when working on the 6th Report on the State of the Alps on the theme of the Green Economy.

On 19 February 2015, the UNESCO Dolomites Foundation was awarded co-chairmanship of the Alpine Convention working group on sustainable tourism set up by the various ministries of the Alpine countries at their meeting in Turin for the XIII Alpine Conference. The Foundation will retain co-chairmanship for the period 2015-2016.

Foundation Director Marcella Morandini, as Co-Chairman together with Professor Bausch of the Technische Universität of Munich, Bavaria, will coordinate the work in partnership with the European Academy of Bolzano (EURAC) and Milan’s Bocconi University. The aim of the Alpine Convention working group is to promote greater harmony between tourism and the environment, facing up to the inevitable challenges and, first and foremost, tackling the issues of the management of Alpine tourism and of the green economy.
