“Smart mountains”: call for successful initiatives for the XII European Mountain Convention

Euromontana is launching a call for initiatives in the framework of the XII European Mountain Convention, co-organised with Cia – Agricoltori Italiani on 25-26-27 October 2022 in the Italian Natural Park and Biosphere Reserve of Sila.

This year’s European Mountain Convention will focus on “Smart mountains: how to make our territories attractive and future-oriented?”.  In order to shape the future of smart mountains for 2050, the event will showcase inspiring initiatives from all over Europe within six workshops dedicated to:

  • Smart Living: how to improve the quality of life by maintaining the provision of quality services of general interest in mountain areas?
  • Smart employment: how to maintain jobs, including skilled jobs, all year round in the mountains?
  • Smart and clean mobility: how to develop new, clean and alternative transport modes for people and goods?
  • Smart economy: how to achieve a carbon-neutral mountain economy?
  • Enabling tools: how can digitalisation benefit mountain areas?
  • Smart management of natural resources: how can innovation support sustainable management of resources?

 

How to submit an initiative?

We are looking for initiatives that:

  • Come from European mountain areas,
  • Are adapted to the proposed topic and approach of the workshop,
  • Have a level of success in terms of impact and concrete and measurable results on the ground,
  • Have at least one innovative aspect (new product or service, technological innovation, new business model, social innovation, new approach, methodology, new tools, etc),
  • Are transferable to other mountain areas.

Are you aware of a particularly innovative initiative in your mountain region? Have you contributed to the implementation of an action that has made a difference for the future of your territory? Would you like to share it with us during the European Mountain Convention?

Then use the below form to take a look at the description and ambitions of our workshops and submit your initiative proposal!
