ALPSTAR: Towards Carbon Neutral Alps – Make Best Practice Minimum Standard
Chambéry/F, 27th and 28th October 2011
The goal of the Alpine Space Project “ALPSTAR, Toward Carbon Neutral Alps – Make Best Practice Minimum Standard”, is to achieve climate neutrality in the Alps by 2050. At the initial conference on 27th and 28th October 2011 in Chambéry participants discussed the policy requirements on energy, transport and the economy in order to reach climate neutrality in the Alps. Concepts for good climate governance and effective means of communication to engage the population were presented. Working groups further discussed policy measures, strategies and challenges of selected aspects of climate neutrality. Participants learned about good practice examples of sustainable climate protection initiatives by taking part in a half day excursion in Chambéry.
