Climate action in small alpine villages – ALPACA dialogue on March 5th 2021
In the face of climate change we need to take local action – and all eyes are on the mayors.
Join the online «ALPACA dialogue» on March 5th from 10:00 to 12:30 and discuss together the following questions:
- What are the main climate related challenges for small alpine villages?
- What are the opportunities and barriers for local climate action?
- What kind of support would mayors need to play a key role in climate action?
Debate with Wilfried Tissot, mayor of Saint Pierre d’Entremont (France) and Anton Mattle, mayor of Galtür (Austria).
Saint Pierre d’Entremont is a small village in the French massif of the Chartreuse, facing various facets of the climate change challenges, in the field of water supply, agriculture, mobility, energy efficiency and tourism.
Galtür is a ski resort at the end of Paznaun Valley in Tyrol. It also deals with climate change challenges and is well known for its alpine environmental museum “Alpinarium”, which was built after the avalanche disaster of 1999.
The exchange will be held in English. The interventions of Wilfrid Tissot (French) and Anton Mattle (German) will be translated to English.
