Nr 43 - May 2012

Everything is new in May“ is a saying…
And that’s why our multivision “For the Alps will be presented finally in May 2012!
Created in a joined process between protected areas of 6 different Alpine countries, the result is an impressive summation for the Alpine biodiversity, which is sensible and esthetically described - a truly original trip to the mountains which will fascinate you!
Therefore we would like to invite you to this new adventure in the Alps, which will not just give you emotional moments but which will also introduce you to a completely new aspect of the mountains.
The multivision will be shown in a pre-premiere during the European Day of Parks in different places all over the Alps and furthermore on the occasion of different events of the alpine protected areas and ALPARC, which are already planned for the upcoming months.
