Youth Alpine Dialogue

Young generations are the key actors for a sustainable development in the Alps. However, due to a lack of long term structures for youth participation, it is difficult to reach them and to keep them involved.

How can we contribute to strengthen youth participation in the alpine region? How can we create a space where young people can speak and be heard? How can we raise awareness in municipalities, regions and nations that youth participation must be in their agenda?
The project "Alpine Youth Dialogue" brings together 13 partners, 36 young people between 15 and 30 from 6 alpine countries (Italy, Slovenia, Austria, Switzerland, France and Liechtenstein), networking many initiatives and institutions for young people with different cultural, national and educational backgrounds who wish to participate in the process of shaping the future of the alpine region.

The focus is on the implementation of measures to improve youth participation in the Alps, setting the framework and accompanying the process. The project will last from January 2014 till May 2015. CIPRA International is the initiator and lead partner. CIPRA receives financial support for the Project YAD from the EU Program “Youth in Action”.
