Tour des villes

Contribution of Alpine towns to the Alpine Week and subsequent consolidation: sustainable settlement development with a focus on village/city centre revitalisation and use of open spaces

In the framework of Tour des Villes representatives of the Alpine Towns draw from their wide ranging knowledge on sustainable urban development and elaborate together innovative solutions for participation in the planning and realisation process, for decision making and construction of projects for sustainable settlement development, paying special attention to conversion areas.

Project goals    

  • Strengthening the awareness of the representatives of the Alpine towns that they are part of an Alpine region and that their commitment is needed so that the Alps continue to be a unique habitat.
  • Mutual learning from each other and exchange on how city representatives can use their room for manoeuvre for sustainable settlement development.
  • Dissemination of a view of architecture that is committed to a multitude of criteria and does not stop at pure energy indicators.
  • In part also "backing" challenges in the field of spatial planning and urban development ("in the ASDJ Idrija this was successfully solved in this way").
  • Strengthening cohesion among Alpine towns.

Target groups

The target groups are alpine city consultants and city representatives from the fields of spatial planning, private and public building, urban master builders, architects, etc. together. The inviting city worked out a concrete question, depending on where it would like to see the expertise of the participants and which good examples it would like to present, and defined further actors according to the objects and the thematic focus.
