Euromontana invites you to its webinar “Climate adaptation: what opportunities for mountain businesses?” taking place on 27 May 2021 from 14:00 to 15:45 (CET).
Euromontana will organise its XII European Mountain Convention on “Smart mountains: how to make our territories attractive and future-oriented?” in the Natural Park & UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Sila, Italy in 11-12-13 October 2022. This 3-Day event will aim at defining a sustainable strategy for the development of smart mountains towards 2050. In view of this event, Euromontana is organising a series of webinars to feed reflection and showcase good initiatives and contribute to foresight analysis for our collective future. The third webinar will focus on business opportunities for mountain SMEs linked to climate adaptation.
Climate change acts faster in mountain regions compared to lowland areas, and it strongly affects the mountain economy. For instance, a 2°C-temperature increase is expected to reduce the length of the European winter sport season by an average of 19 days, causing a loss of 10.1 million nights per winter season. Local businesses shall act quickly and seize the existing opportunities to tackle the effects of climate change in their business and foster mountain adaptation.
What are the current and future opportunities to foster climate adaptation for SMEs and businesses in mountains? What are some of the most inspiring examples?
Programme and registration
