About "Alliance in the Alps"
The network of municipalities "Alliance in the Alps" is an association of local authorities and regions from seven Alpine states and was founded in 1997. Its members, together with their citizens, strive to develop their alpine living environment in a sustainable way. “Exchange - Address – Implement” is the main idea behind the Alliance’s activities. The basic and guiding principle for sustainable development is the Alpine Convention. Its implementation is to come to life wherever individuals are able to shape their future, i.e. in the community. And to ensure that the wheel does not have to be re-invented each time, the network of communities offers an exchange of experience and information beyond the boundaries of language and culture. All the publications and events are in four languages: German, French, Italian and Slovene.
