What are the European Mountain Conventions?

The European Mountain Conventions are the major events for mountain stakeholders in Europe. Euromontana organises this event every two years together with one of its local member organisation in different European mountain regions. High-level and key people are invited to participate and the Conventions attracts up to 400 professionals and stakeholders from various sectors from all Europe –e.g. the European Commission, national ministries, local businesses, universities, and development agencies.

The European Mountain Conventions serve as a platform for networking, exchange of knowledge and partner search and have been very successful since their beginning in 1998.

XIIth European Mountain Convention (Sila Park, 29 & 30 September and 1 October 2020)

“Smart mountains: how to make our territories attractive and future-oriented?”

The XII European Mountain Convention aims to define a sustainable strategy for the development of smart mountains towards 2050.

The Convention goals are to present the economic, social or environmental challenges faced by European mountains and provide innovative solutions to these. It will thus showcase smart initiatives for key sectors in mountain areas, such as tourism and agriculture, and will provide the basis for more integrated and effective public policies, contributing to the sustainable development of mountain areas and the quality of life of mountain communities.
