Alpine dialogue in Lucerne: common background knowledge on energy transition

Around 30 participants from all of the Alpine countries were invited by CIPRA to meet for the first edition of the “Alpine dialogue” on energy transition, held on 23 and 24 October 2013 in Lucerne (CH).

Input and exchange

The meeting began with inputs on energy transition from Hanspeter Guggenbühl, a journalist and expert on energy transition, and Antony Patt, an expert on human environment systems. The national representatives of CIPRA presented the situation and status quo in each Alpine country in the form of a marketplace. Following these inputs, participants from numerous different kinds of organisations (NGOs, civil society, local and national authorities, experts) exchanged their viewpoints and together began to define a common vision for a successful and sustainable energy transition at local, national and international level.
