People from various Alpine countries meet for Alpine Convention events, at project meetings and at AlpWeek 2016 to jointly pledge their commitment to sustainable development in the Alps. The 2016 annual report by CIPRA International is dedicated to this co-operation, because change will only come about if we work together.

The annual report tells of encounters, for example between Sandrine Percheval from France and Cassiano Luminati from Switzerland, who met for the first time at AlpWeek.

The 2016 annual report is available online in PDF format in the Alpine languages of German, Slovenian, French and Italian, plus English, at:
