All of us can take small actions to better protect the climate in the Alps! This is why the Swiss Presidency of the Alpine Convention, in cooperation with the Permanent Secretariat of the Alpine Convention, is launching the «Climate Hour» on World Environment Day on 5 June. On this day, local events on climate protection in the Alps will take place throughout the Alps. The aims of the Climate Hour are to bring people together, to showcase diverse climate activities in the Alps and to inspire local action.
The Constructive Alps architecture competition celebrates its tenth anniversary this year. To mark the occasion, a conference on sustainable renovation and construction in the Alps will be held online on 9-10 June 2021. Experts will discuss climate protection, frugality and quality of life with the audience.
More and more people are spending their holidays on their bikes. This presents both opportunities and risks for the Alpine region. At the conference "MoVe the Alps", experts discussed how cycling tourism can be promoted in a climate-friendly way.
