7th CIPRA Summer Academy: The Alps in three weeks

Feb 26, 2004
The 7th Summer Academy of the International Commission for the Protection of the Alps (CIPRA) is taking place from 16 August to 3 September. For anyone interested in the Alps as a region this education course provides a detailed insight. The lectures and project work on topics related to the Alps are designed to offer a more comprehensive view of the Alps.
The issues studied range from mobility and tourism to regional development, agriculture and forestry, energy and climate change. The lecturers are all internationally acknowledged experts in their field.
Besides the lectures working groups are to be set up to develop projects on the subject of local recreation in the region of Liechtenstein - Werdenberg/CH. The area covered by the project comprises around 65,000 inhabitants and 45,500 jobs. The project work is to examine ways in which to use local recreation measures to enhance the region's appeal for those who live there, and how to raise the quality of life and the potential for the region's economy.
The event is to take place on the premises of the Liechtenstein University of Applied Sciences in Vaduz. It is aimed at all participants who are interested in an interdisciplinary transnational approach to issues relating to the Alps and have a university or higher education degree or professional experience in the relevant fields. The course languages are German and English, with simultaneous interpreting provided for the lectures. The deadline for registration, which can be made at www.cipra.org (de/fr/it/sl), is 31 May; the web site also has more details of this training and education event, including the course programme.
