The Interreg Alpine Space project "Beyond Snow" is about the future of winter tourism in the Alps. The project aims to increase the socio-ecological climate resilience of small mid-altitude snow tourism destinations and communities so that they can maintain their attractiveness for residents and tourists. The project will jointly elaborate new sustainable development pathways, transition processes and implementable solutions in specific pilot working areas spread over six Alpine countries to improve the resilience of Alpine tourism destinations and communities that rely on winter tourism. The project is planned to run for 36 months and the budget for the EGTC is 190,675 euros.
For Alpine Pearls, our member Werfenweng is participating as a pilot working area. With the help of a total of ten pilot regions in the Alpine Space, strategies and processes are to be developed that aim at reducing the snow dependency of winter tourism destinations and mitigating climate-related ecological and socio-economic impacts. Our member Bohinj is also involved in the project as a pilot region via another project partner.
The project involves the following partners from six Alpine countries:
- Eurac research (lead partner)
- Legambiente Lombardy
- Polytechnic University of Turin
- Metropolitan City of Turin
- Mountain Community of Carnia
- EGTC Alpine Pearls ltd
- Upper Gorenjska Development Agency
- Arctur Computertechnik d.o.o.
- Technical University of Deggendorf
- SKI RESORT METABIEF
- Swiss working group for mountain regions
- Community Network "Alliance in the Alps"
- Association for the Promotion of the Transition Factory
