Mountain Innovation Fair

Bolzano, Italy
From: 23.10.2023 to: 25.10.2023

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the UNU-EHS Global Mountain Safeguard Research programme (GLOMOS) invite applications for the First Mountain Innovation Fair from 23- 25 October 2023 in Bolzano, Italy.

Dealing with remoteness, a rugged environment, exposed to natural hazards and a fast-changing climate, mountain areas have always been challenged to keep dynamic in sustaining their livelihoods and surrounding environment. Continuously, unique solutions are being developed and implemented, proving that demanding living conditions can be turned into engines of innovation. But how about sharing and exchanging practical experiences to unleash the full potential of sustainable pathways?

The Mountain Innovation Fair is planned to offer a buzzing, interactive and collaborative workspace to exchange on challenges and successes of innovative approaches, with lively discussions and practical demonstrations. Out-of-the box thinking, novel approaches and facilitating wider access to innovations are at the core of the Fair. 

Apply with your innovative approaches for sustainable development and adaptation in mountains from the Alps, Carpathians, Balkans, South Caucasus, East Africa and Southern Africa before 8 April 2023.
