Alpweek, three days for the transition

The Alpine Week AlpWeek “Alps in transition”, coordinated by the main alpine organizations working for the protection of the mountains and their sustainable development, will take place this year from September 5 to 7 in Brig, Switzerland.

There is no single solution, but rather many different approaches to the ecological transition in the Alps. Quality of life, low-carbon lifestyle and citizen participation will be at the center of the solutions that we will develop during the Alpine Week ”, announce the organizers. On the program: conferences, interactive workshops, meetings between young people, excursions to the Simplon Pass and the Aletsch Glacier sector, hiking on the Via Alpina...

On September 6, the event will welcome Kirsten Koop – co-coordinator of Labex ITTEM and researcher in the laboratory Pacte from the University of Grenoble Alpes – for the first conference on the theme of citizen initiatives in the French Alps, echoing the Transformont research project carried out within the Labex.

On the same day, Thomas Spiegelberger of the Inrae will animate the session “Transition, a conceptual and operational process” – co-written with Raffaella Balzarini – echoing the post-doctorate Transition and mountain territories of Carine Pachoud.
