Harnessing expertise for ecological networks in the Alps

Expertise from the fields of science and practice is to be harnessed for the successful long-term networking of animal and plant habitats.

The Ecological Continuum Initiative has brought international experts together as part of a think tank whose long-term objective is to setup up an alpine-wide ecological network. The think tank provides the experts from the fields of science and practice with a framework for developing new projects to complement and follow up on existing activities such as the ECONNECT project.
In December 2009 26 experts accepted the invitation extended by the Continuum partners ALPARC, CIPRA, ISCAR and the WWF to convene in Chamonix/F to discuss the objectives and activities of the think tank in 2010. Three theme-related workshops are to focus the work of the think tank over the coming months.
