How to generate added value from Europe’s mountains?

Euromontana, in cooperation with the Swiss Centre for mountain regions (SAB) is organising the 6th European Mountain
Convention in the city of Brig. In the year 2008, Brig is Alpine city of the year, which provides an ideal background for the
Mountain Convention.

This Convention aims to discuss how to generate added value within Europe’s mountain areas and the sessions will be treating specifically new European policies in mountain areas, the right political framework for mountains and their way
to competitiveness and innovation, transformation of the industrial sector in mountains and mountain economy,
developing entrepreneurship in mountain areas as well as ways of adaptation to climate change.

The Mountain Convention is made possible through the support from the Swiss Federal Office for Agriculture, the Canton
of Wallis and the city of Brig as well as numerous other sponsors.
