Our action respects some fundamental principles:
To always be consistent with the concept of sustainable development:
- – environmental,
- – social,
- – economic.
To promote quality :
In order to bring added value, our mountains must play the card of quality : quality of life but also quality of products and projects. Euromontana’s proposals will systematically ensure that quality is promoted, especially through marks of quality.
To operate as a network :
Each project will be carried out by several organizations with a leader responsible for implementation and reporting to the Board of Directors. Communities of shared interests will be created to better analyse problems and to design solutions, building on the collective intelligence and solidarity among mountain populations.
To use new technological tools :
The physical distance between Euromontana’s members is a constraint to our efficiency. Hence we will use new technologies to communicate and work on a day-to-day basis: this will be our first contribution to minimizing energy expenditures. However, human contacts will never be replaced by technologies and each member organization will commit to participating in at least one event every year (seminar, colloquium, general assembly, conference).
