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 – Smart Mountains
Sila National Park, 25-26-27 October 2022
The XII European Mountain Convention took place on 25 – 26 – 27 October 2022 in the Sila National Natural Park, Italy, by Euromontana in collaboration with Cia – Agricoltori Italiani. It brought together more than 150 mountain stakeholders from all over Europe to discuss a shared goal: how to make our territories more resilient and attractive in 2050?
The XII European Mountain Convention aimed at defining a sustainable strategy for the development of smart mountains towards 2050. It thus showcased smart initiatives for key sectors in mountain areas, such as tourism and agriculture, and discussions helped to 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.
