CIPRA's Future in the Alps competition - 570 projects online

The Future in the Alps competition being held across the Alps has been very well received. By the July 20 submission deadline individuals and organisations from all eight Alpine countries had submitted more than 570 projects.
All the competition contributions can now be viewed at www.cipra.org/future. The six winning projects will be notified during the first half of September and announced on 22 September.
Under the terms of the competition we were looking for the best projects on sustainable development in the Alpine region. As part of its Future in the Alps Project the International Commission for the Protection of the Alps (CIPRA) is compiling and rewarding innovative ideas that have already been implemented. Switzerland's MAVA Foundation for Nature Conservation is financing the Project and prize money worth a total of 150,000 euros.
We received 200 projects from Switzerland and 186 from Italy. The response from Austria was also strong, with 153 projects submitted. Other entries came from France (82), Germany (57), Slovenia (27), Liechtenstein (15) and Monaco (5). Many of the contributions concern cross-national projects.
