MOVING Clusters workshop: Unlocking the Power of Mountain Value Chains 

November 6, 2023
Budapest, Hungary

MOVING organised the workshop: Unlocking the Power of Mountain Value Chains. The event was held from the 6th to the 8th of November 2023 in Hungary, and it gathered around 100 local actors from 16 countries.

The MOVING Clusters workshop was organised as part of the cross-case comparison of value chains and the foresight exercise. It aimed to identify gaps, discuss implications, and co-create recommendations for enabling environments in mountain areas, with a strong focus on the resilience and sustainability of value chains.  

Participants explored five major topics addressed by the MOVING clusters — (i) social and demographic change, (ii) value and quality products, (iii) innovation and infrastructure, (iv) nature and ecosystem services, and (v) governance— integrating regional foresight exercises and fostering exchanges between stakeholders.

The key objectives of the workshop were: 

  • Introduce and discuss the results of the MOVING project and their relevance to the future of mountain areas.
  • Provide the opportunity to get to know, and share experiences with people from other mountain regions with similar interests and concerns to your own.
  • Involve you in identifying what is needed from our communities, businesses and policy-makers to “unlock the power of mountain products” for supporting the future of mountain areas.
