On 25th June 2014, the “Rhônes-Alpes” Region, member of Euromontana, created a “Rhônes-Alpes 2040 Mountain Council“. It aims at promoting exemplary actions that enable full life projects to be carried on in mountain areas, at managing reflections on major issues for mountain areas and at keeping up on the “Mountain 2040” prospective approach.
Indeed, the creation of this council fits into the “Mountain 2040″ strategy, launched in January 2012 by the Region. Thanks to this prospective approach, stakeholders are consulted on the drafting of all the regional policies.
The Council presented different projects holding the “Mountain 2040″ label, which rewards exemplary actions and good practices, such as the “Felix Faure” mountain refuge respecting high environmental and safety standards in la Grande Casse, or a fair aiming at helping the creation and the recovery of a business in the Chablais mountain.
