The European Union Strategy for the Alpine Region (EUSALP) involves 7 states and almost 50 regions. For these territories, the Alps with their foothills and lowlands represent a specific asset and challenge. Highly exposed to the consequences of climate change, the Alpine massif needs rapid responses. Tourism, biodiversity, agriculture, mobility, energy… EUSALP encourages innovative approaches adapted to mountain issues. Come participate and share common ambitions at the launch of the French presidency.

Under the honorary presidency of Elisa FERREIRA – European Commissioner for Cohesion and Reforms, Jacqueline GOURAULT – Minister for Territorial Cohesion and Relations with Local Authorities, Laurent WAUQUIEZ – President of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region, Renaud MUSELIER – President of the Region Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur President of French Regions, Marie-Guite DUFAY – President of the Region Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, are pleased to invite you to the launch of the French presidency of EUSALP 2020 “Together for a greener Alpine region”.
