The network aims at: - a better ecological condition of alpine lakes, according to the Water Framework Directive; - to promote a sustainable development of lakeside mainly based on ecotourism; - to pool, to exchange, to develop and to promote all kind of sustainable development practices in alpine lakes and lakeside. These objectives can be achieved with a participative approach aimed to improve the knowledge and to spread sustainable development practices for all topics.
