From November 16th-17th, the Community Network Alliance in the Alps and CIPRA International organise a tourism conference in Prien am Chiemsee (DE). At the start of the programme, Prof. Dominik Siegrist (University of Applied Sciences, Rapperswil) will explain the current and future challenges facing destinations and their populations. In concrete terms, the focus will be on how climate change, for example, is affecting outdoor sports in addition to current crisis management. The second part of the conference will be devoted to the question of what the outdoor experience could look like as a basis for sustainable tourism in the Alps in the future. Current measures as well as different approaches from the entire Alpine region will be presented, which break new ground in sustainable tourism development. Finally, Prof. Christian Baumgartner (FH Graubünden) will present and discuss a model that can help to tackle the challenges of sustainable tourism in the Alpine region in a comprehensive and integrative manner at local and regional level.
