The second edition of the Alpweek is being held in the Pays des Ecrins/F from 11 to 14 June 2008, with players from throughout the Alpine region discussing issues of sustainable development. After the positive experiences of the 2004 Alpweek in Kranjska Gora/SI the major Alpine networks ISCAR, CIPRA, Alliance in the Alps, ALPARC and Club Arc Alpin decided to repeat the event in 2008.
The aim is to promote dialogue between the different groups of players involved in sustainable development. Proposals are also to be drawn up on ways in which public administrations and the Alpine Convention in particular can orientate their activities and their measures towards sustainable innovation.
In five main topic strands, the lectures and presentations are to address the issue of "New Thinking - Thinking Anew [in the Alps]". The main subject always revolves around questions of innovation, coupled with the challenges of sustainable development in the Alps. The programme is rounded off with excursions, exhibitions and forums as well as festival and cultural events. Information: www.alpweek.org (de/fr/it/sl/en)
