The AlpWeek is an international event co-organised by the leading Alpine organisations committed to mountain protection and sustainable development. The 2022 edition will take place in in the Alpine town of Brig-Glis in Switzerland, at the foot of the beautiful Simplon Pass. The two-day AlpWeek will lead to the Alpine Conference on 8 September also in Brig-Glis, thus bringing together citizens and stakeholders to discuss the manifold aspects of transition in the Alps.
Alps in transisiton – Rethinking Alpine lifestyles for an ecologically, socially and economically sustainable transition
The ecological transition is already happening in the Alps – and we are in the middle of it. In order to face the unprecedented environmental and sustainability challenges ahead, we need to change our lifestyles and rethink our energy consumption, our production methods, our food supply… Beyond the energy, economic and agri-food transitions, many other sectors are experiencing transition of their own, such as tourism, mobility or spatial planning.
Inspiring keynotes, interactive workshops, cultural happenings, local excursions as well as a youth conference are in the making. A detailed programme will be made available in the course of 2022. To find out more, visit www.alpweek.org.
