Sustainable Alpine Tourism
Around 120 million tourists visit the Alps every year making the impact of tourism on Alpine nature considerable. New waves of ‘mass tourism’ threaten to destroy pristine wildlife areas.
Nature knows no boundaries, neither do the problems it faces. In order to protect Alpine nature in its entirety, a more comprehensive approach is needed. The new European Alpine Programmes offers just that.
Alpine ecosystem is one of the most important elements of the global scientific and political programme. Special attention is paid to species and ecosystem diversity, structural and functional organisation of ecosystems, water management, global changes (climate, land use), ecological prospects, mountain landscape use, biological resources, ecosystem protection and restoration measures, sustainable management ecological education issues.
But not all forms of tourism threaten Alpine nature. In fact, sustainable designed tourism can be used instead to promote the protection of natural areas in the Alps.
International cooperation across the Alps will be key to saving Alpine nature.
