N° 75 | July 2020 NEWS  CALENDAR

Dear Friends and Colleagues all over the Alps,

None of us would have imagined at the beginning of the year how the next months would develop and that the health situation would request us to stay home and reduce our physical mobility patterns as much as possible. In between severe quarantine as for Italy, France and Slovenia and more flexible security measures as have been taken in Germany, Switzerland and Austria, the need for going outside into nature and find contemplation in a calm and sound environment became prevailing.  Indeed, several protected areas found themselves confronted with the need to raise awareness on correct behavior in the mountains. Biodiversity conservation and intact habitats help keeping our environment safe not only for coming generations but also for the generations to live now. In this sense we’ll continue to engage ourselves to support our protected areas in different projects and activities. Please enjoy reading our latest newsletter and have a lovely summer.

All the best,

The ALPARC team
