Alpine Space Expert Workshop - "Coping with Climate Change - Transnational Action in the Alps" 

Climate Change has been addressed at the first of three Alpine Space Expert Workshops in Interlaken 4-5 May 2010. 100 experts examined how the economy, and tourism as a key sector, transport, energy, water and biodiversity are affected - all essential for the development of this region. Progressively increasing effects of climate change as projected also for the Alps necessitate an active exchange between all ongoing initiatives. 

Alpine Space Forum: "Coping with Demographic Change"

Population development poses serious challenges, particularly in the Alps. What exactly constituted these challenges and how they could be met was highlighted in the course of the forum "Coping with Demographic Change" in Innsbruck, Austria, on 22nd and 23rd February 2011. The forum, which was organised by the EU Alpine Space Programme together with the Austrian Federal Chancellery and the State of Tyrol, was attended by approximately 120 experts from seven countries and the European Commission. The organisers' intention was to encourage decision and policy makers in the Alpine region, by presenting them with facts and an intensive exchange of practical examples, to deal with the demographic development in a swift and determined manner.

Alpine Space Forum: "Pooling Potentials for Competitiveness"

With this last in a series of three thematic events, the Alpine Space Programme wanted to reinforce its contribution to the cross-cutting theme of competitiveness. 120 experts, practitioners and policy makers met in Ljubljana, Slovenia on 27 and 28 September 2011 to discuss how to stimulate cluster development and provide input to the ongoing policy debate. This event, hosted by the Slovenian Ministry of the Environment and Spatial Planing was designed by the Alpine Space Programme to finely tune its own strategic orientation and to advance the ongoing policy debate.
