ALPARC is the lead partner of two innovative Alpine Space projects: ALPBIONET2030 and YOUrALPS. These two projects have been running since 2016. The projects outputs and results are now ready to be presented and discussed during the projects’ final events from October 8th to 11th in Chamonix and Chambéry (FR).
ALPBIONET2030: Protecting habitats and species by enhancing ecological connectivity is the main focus of this project. In this context, transnational cooperation is the key to harmonising the interventions required for nature protection. Moreover, it will develop over time the proper planning and tools needed to ensure effective and efficient ecological connectivity for biodiversity conservation.
The ALPBIONET Final Conference will be a unique opportunity to get to know the project results and approaches and to further discuss their implementation in day-to-day work for Alpine biodiversity and the protected areas.
The project’s website can be found here.
Registrations are still open and are available here.
YOUrALPS: Educating young people to sustainable development in their Alpine territories is a prerequisite for a lively future in the mountains. On the scientific basis of Mountain-oriented Education, the partners of the project have developed a lot of activities to adopt innovative approaches in school to favour young people’s understanding of their changing environment and to re-connect them to the natural and cultural heritage of the Alps.
The YOUrALPS Final Conference will be the perfect occasion to learn more about the innovative pedagogical approaches that have been developed in the last three years and to exchange with teachers, students and educators from different educational backgrounds.
The project’s website is available here.
