UIAA Mountain Protection Award 2016
How can we preserve and protect our precious mountain ecosystems and cultures in the 21st century?
By promoting responsible mountain tourism and supporting key stakeholders active in mountain protection.
The UIAA Mountain Protection Award is two-fold:
- It serves as a crowdsourcing platform, whereby showcased initiatives can solicit funds and be promoted through this site as well as through the UIAA federations’ network (www.theuiaa.org).
- It promotes international recognition via its annual Prize award for the best initiative. The Award winner receives a Prize in the form of a cash grant and is invited to present its activities at the UIAA General Assembly.
