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.

XIth European Mountain Convention (Vatra Dornei, 25-27 September 2018)

“Cultural Heritage as an Engine for Creativity, Innovation and Socioeconomic Development of Mountain areas”

The cultural heritage is particularly rich and diversified in mountain areas. It includes natural sites, monuments but also, agronomic, forestry and food practices, or traditions. “As a real asset rooted in the territory, a place-specific resource, cultural heritage requires better valorisation and gives future prospects to our youth and our mountains” explains Juanan Gutierrez, President of Euromontana. Following two days of conference, exchanges of good practices and debates, the representatives of Euromontana and participants hammered out a common declaration, to call upon EU, national and regional institutions to better recognise this mountain cultural and natural heritage
