Just like its sister event, AlpWeek, which takes place every four years, AlpWeek Intermezzo is an international event co-organised by the leading Alpine organisations committed to mountain protection and sustainable development. The city of Nice, located at the tip of the Alpine Arc, will be hosting this open-access event this year in an exceptional Alpine setting. AlpWeek Intermezzo 2020 will lead on from the events to mark the close of the French Presidency of the Alpine Convention and the EUSALP, bringing together stakeholders from this range of Alpine cooperative frameworks.

Youth & Climate - How can young people in the Alps be involved in shaping their future?

The living environment and occupations considered today as typically ‘Alpine’ will no doubt evolve in the future, due in particular to climate change. The AlpWeek Intermezzo 2020 will focus on what this means for younger generations. How do young people perceive the changes in landscapes and natural environment linked to climate change?  What environment will they live in? 

Are you part of this younger generation, a member of a non-profit organisation, do you work in an educational institution, incubator or careers guidance organisation, are you a researcher, civil servant, politician, or simply an Alpine inhabitant? Come and share your perspective and experience with a view to drafting out solutions together to help involve young people in this fast-paced change in our environment, societies and economies.

Organisers: Alliance in the Alps, Alpine Convention, Interreg Alpine Space Programme, Alpine Town of the Year, CIPRA France, CIPRA International, Club Arc Alpin, French Federation of Alpine and Mountain Clubs, ISCAR Alpine Research, World Wild Fund for Nature.

The AlpWeek Intermezzo 2020 has been organised with the kind support of the Ministry of Ecological and Solidarity Transition, the Sud-Provence Alpes Côte d'Azur Region, the Auvergne Rhône Alpes Region and the Nice Côte d’Azur Metropolis.
