About the project
Mountain areas in Europe constitute - from an environmental, cultural, social and economic point of view - peculiar and substantially organic local systems, so much so that they are recognized as "local communities".
The issues we want to address and on which we want to promote a strong exchange of good intervention practices concerning:
- the demographic dynamics that indicate a continuous loss of mainly young residents;
- the territorial dispersion of the settlements and the need for a network of sustainable physical connections, based on sustainable transport systems to be used also in the tourism sector;
- high tourism development based on the great environmental and naturalistic value, due to the presence of parks and a man-made mountain, but not depleted.
We are therefore interested in an Interreg Europe project that addresses these issues and at the same time is an important opportunity to contribute to a government of the EU territory that can overcome localisms...
Project idea owner
Partners we are looking for
The promoter of the project idea is the Province of Sondrio which includes two mountain valleys, Valtellina and Valchiavenna located in the northern part of Lombardy on the border with Switzerland, a mountainous territory divided into 77 small municipalities. We look for similar regions in the EU.
