The Permanent Secretariat of the Alpine Convention is organizing the “We are Alps “ journalist tour: an annual event for a group of journalists who will be crossing the Alps in a week-long excursion. The upcoming edition will take place from the 25th June to the 2nd July 2017 and will be focused on the topic of WATER IN THE ALPS. The application for potential journalist participants is currently open!
Interested journalists are invited to apply by the deadline on the 30th of April 2017. Selected candidates will be notified by mid-May.
The small group of journalists taking part in the event will be using sustainable means of transport (trains, buses, boats, bicycles) on a route from Vienna to Monaco.
During the excursion, the group will have the chance to be involved in different activities related to the topic of this year, notably meeting actors of flagship projects for innovative water management and many other people from the alps (experts, representatives of the civil society, of different economic sectors and different administrative levels, business people, workers, farmers and politicians). The event is an occasion to raise awareness on the challenges and opportunities of the Alpine area with a specific focus on water.
