Cultural laboratory Alps

Screeching saws, purring guitars, sizzling pans – that’s the sound of culture in the Alps. The CIPRA Annual Symposium on 25 and 26 October in Altdorf, Switzerland will focus on the impact of culture and how it can contribute to sustainable development.

Hands shape clay, planes work wood, camera lenses capture moments, vocal chords form sounds: Alpine culture tells stories about usage, customs, materials, landscapes, traditions and their changes. Culture permeates our entire lives. It networks and condenses existing values and traditions, opens up space for new impulses, questions supposed realities and establishes new ones.

What significance does culture have for sustainable development in the Alpine region? CIPRA’s annual conference from 25 to 26 October 2019 in Altdorf in the Swiss canton of Uri invites representatives from the fields of culture, politics, science, business and society to discuss the possibilities and limits of Alpine culture, to think creatively in workshops and to explore culture on site during excursions.
