"The Alps in my backpack” a multifunctional pedagogical tool for activities linked to the Alps, mountain heritage and protected alpine areas is available for you! 

“The Alps in my backpack” is a big sheet, measuring 240 x 150 cm and printed on a durable fabric. It shows the map of the Alps and all their principal protected nature reserves. Moreover, it presents the diversity of Alpine landscapes, emblematic species, the creation of the Alps, cultural and linguistic diversity, and current issues in the Alpine territory.
The tool has been created collectively by members of the “Mountain environmental education in Alpine protected areas” working group, which had long wanted to benefit from a simple and practical shared tool during their activities, for addressing alpine issues in their global dimension, beyond the usual boundaries.


As part of the 2017 edition of “Youth at the top”, rangers, animators and educators will be invited to use(s) the “Alps in my backpack” tool.

Please notice that 3 copies of the “Alps in my backpack"  tool are available for free for all the ALPARC members.

To obtain one or more copies of this tool, please contact info [at] alparc.org

Co-financed by the German Ministry for the Environment and the Principality of Monaco

During our international workshop “Wildlife and winter sport activities” in the Bauges regional nature park in March 2016, the participants have expressed a strong wish to elaborate a common communication strategy. In the frame of the project WeWild - We respect Alpine wildlife -, ALPARC aims at developing – for the protected areas of the Alps –a joint communication strategy and awareness-raising tools in order to reduce the impact of winter sport practitioners on wildlife in the Alps. The aim of the project is to send out a joint awareness-raising message to winter outdoor practitioners in the Alps in order to give greater momentum to local and regional initiatives.


Alparc coordinates the project and pursues a participatory approach, involving protected area staff and other stakeholders. A first workshop will take place in March 23 and 24 in Vorarlberg (AT). The aim of this first meeting is share experiences in awareness-raising campaigns and to elaborate the contents of the joint strategy (see programme attached). A second workshop will take place in November 2017 in the Italian Alps (to be confirmed). The workshop is open to experts from the Alpine protected areas and other stakeholders, such as Alpine clubs, environmental NGOs and regional governments.


The project will also develop awareness-raising tools that are free to use and share (available from January 2018). The project will use partnerships with the private sector, festivals and sporting events to disseminate the tools and to implement the communication strategy in the medium run. A final conference in November 2018 will bring further momentum to our initiative, presenting the results and gathering a large number of Alpine stakeholders around the topic.


The project is supported by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment (BMUB). For more information and in order to register for the workshop, please contact us directly.

Following an international seminar held in March 2016, the operational unit of ALPARC has been coordinating the drafting of a common strategy and awareness-raising tools to reduce impact on wildlife in the Alps.


The year 2016 has been marked by the launch of a working group within the ALPARC network covering the handling of mountain sports and outdoor activities in winter. On 3 and 4 March, an international seminar in the Massif des Bauges Natural Park brought together over 45 participants from different sectors and from throughout the Alps. They stressed the fundamental need to share methods and experiences and develop a common approach at an Alps-wide level.


A common communication strategy for large protected areas and beyond


A first step in this direction is the We respect Alpine Wildlife (WeWild) project coordinated by the operational unit of ALPARC. Over the next two years (2017-2018), this project aims to strengthen the links between the various initiatives at an Alpine level. Based on a collaborative approach with two workshops in 2017 and with a final conference in 2018, the project aims to develop a common communication strategy. It will provide the first tools for raising awareness, which will then be made available to a multitude of stakeholders in the Alps. Among these will be a website, which will also serve as a resource centre, and a “teaser” video clip drawing attention to the theme. WeWild will recruit members of the ALPARC working group – including several Alpine protected areas – as well as new players such as businesses in the “outdoor” sector.


Background information


Today, mountain sports and outdoor activities in winter are changing dramatically. Experts note an expansion of these activities in terms of time (throughout winter, all day) and space. Studies show that this shift has significant and detrimental effects on Alpine fauna, which is particularly vulnerable during the winter months. This problem requires a greater awareness among practitioners of these activities and among visitors to sensitive sites in order to enable a coexistence between man and wildlife.


The WeWild project has been selected as part of Germany’s Federal Ministry for the Environment's (BMUB) call for projects in 2016 with regard to special “environmental protection” postage stamps. Every two years, the Ministry supports projects proposed by environmental associations through the sale of a special postage stamp. As part of the German Presidency of the Alpine Convention 2015-2016, the 2016 edition of the stamp is called “The Alps – Diversity in Europe”.

ALPBIONET2030 – project launch

ALPBIONET2030 project will enable ALPARC and the 14 other partners to refine the work already achieved on alpine ecological connectivity in these past years. The project objectives include the drawing up of strategic areas maps in and around the Alpine region (Strategic Alpine Connectivity Areas – SACA), the development of a strategy of wild fauna management in cooperation with various actors and a deepen work on mediation tools in order to answer to conflicts which could appear during the implementation of ecological network.


The project was officially launched at the occasion of the Kick off meeting in Vienna (Austria), the 1st and 2nd of last December. This event has gathered the project partners, numerous observers and different personality from alpine institutions.  Thus, the General Secretary of the alpine Convention Mr. Markus Reiterer, the German focal point for alpine Convention, Mrs. Silvia Reppe, the President of the Ecological Network Platform of the alpine Convention, Mr. Thierry Boisseaux, among others, discussed about the importance of this project in an alpine and macro-regional context.


The recent publication « Alpine Nature 2030 – Creating [ecological] connectivity for generations to come » has marked the completion of an important preparation work, which pass now to a more operational phase, particularly through ALPBIONET2030 project. Protected areas from ALPARC network, which are present among partners, will play a key role in these activities, especially as pilot territories for the project results implementation.

No al «Parc Adula»

I determinanti Comuni del comprensorio del progettato nuovo Parco nazionale «Parc Adula» hanno votato questo fine settimana contro una partecipazione al nuovo Parco nazionale. Pro Natura deplora il voto negativo, ritenendolo un’occasione persa. Reputa tuttavia assai positivo il fatto che si è comunque manifestato un ampio sostegno all’idea di uno sviluppo sostenibile ed ecocompatibile.

Il libro « Alpine Nature 2030 - Creating [ecological] connectivity for generations to come », pubblicato ad ottobre, sintetizza dodici anni d’esperienza in tema di connettività ecologica sull’Arco alpino e propone delle prospettive interessanti sull’evoluzione della tematica nei prossimi anni. Numerosi esperti e ricercatori hanno contribuito alla pubblicazione. Diverse mappe inedite completano gli articoli che trattano una vasta gamma di temi come il legame tra la connettività ecologica e i servizi ecosistemici, le Regioni Pilota della Connettività Ecologica, le politiche europee e nazionali di messa in rete delle aree naturali, la cartografia dei territori della connettività nelle Alpi e molto altro.  

Il testo è disponibile come open E-paper e scaricabile nel formato pdf.

Tre corti video accompagnano questa pubblicazione. Questi presentano in maniera semplice e ludica il tema della connettività ecologica e la sua accessibilità al grande pubblico.

Seguite il pesce, lo stambecco e il gipeto barbuto nella ricerca del loro amore. Queste storie d’amore avranno un “happy end”?
