Final Report: Climate action in Alpine towns

2023-04-26 13:17 by The Alpine Town of the Year Association in Collaboration with the Federal Office for Spatial Development

The pilot action “Climate Action in Alpine Towns” was completed at the end of 2022 and the final report is now available. 

In the project “Climate Action in Alpine Towns”, eight Alpine towns implemented climate measures in spatial planning and with the active participation of citizens from the beginning of 2021 to the end of 2022.

The project was implemented within the framework of the Swiss Presidency of the Alpine Convention and the Territorial Agenda 2030. The latter aims to reduce inequalities and environmental risks and to improve governance in spatial development. In this way, sustainable development is linked to climate concerns and local knowledge is consistently used – through the development of ideas “from below” and through the participation of citizens.

The project “Climate Action in Alpine Towns” illustrates the effectiveness of low-threshold climate measures in municipalities – with Alpine towns as pioneers.
