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.

Xth European Mountain Convention (Bragança, 3-5 October 2016)

“Mountains’ vulnerability to climate change: how can people and territories adapt and mitigate its effects?”

Mountain areas have difficult climatic and environmental conditions, but mountain people are used to adapting to these. Thanks to their great experience of innovation and adaptation, they have already started to tackle the challenge of climate change. This X European Mountain Convention will present a state-of-the-art of the situation in mountain areas and of how experience and technical knowledge have been used to provide  solutions to adapt to and mitigate climate change. The focus will be on solutions not only at the policy level, but also at the practitioners’ level, on different issues such as agriculture, energy, water, transport and tourism.
