The conference is being held in four languages (de, fr, it and sl) and focuses on sustainable climate response measures in the Alps. Key points include carbon-neutral towns and cities, energy self-sufficient regions and regional planning as the most important means of climate, and adaptation to climate change. After a first day dedicated to guest speakers, the six workshops held on Day 2 give participants an opportunity to discuss these and related topics at greater length. The programme is rounded off with theme-related field trips in the region around Bolzano.
The town in South Tyrol is the 2009 Alpine Town of the Year and intends to seize this opportunity to launch a climate pact aimed at achieving a carbon-neutral status. CIPRA for its part is seizing the opportunity to showcase the initial results of its climate project entitled "cc.alps - climate change: thinking one step further".
