Towns play a crucial role in climate change adaptation and mitigation. Local cooperation and coordination, across sectors and with the society, enable place-based and sustainable solutions supported by the whole community.

The goal of this two-hour workshop is to tackle questions such as how to identify challenges, how to take first steps as well as how to communicate with stakeholders. Good examples of climate action in towns will also be highlighted, enabling peer-to-peer exchange.

The event will provide space for the continuous dialogue between scientists, practitioners, policy-makers and the public. It will highlights current research and invite key actors and networks to reflect upon an important question: Natural hazard risk: Saving the Alpine future with or without protective forest? Furthermore, the event will present innovative decision support tools for ecosystem-based risk management.

The project, GreenRisk4ALPs, supports risk-based protective forest management as part of an integral and ecosystem-based natural hazard risk management in the Alpine Space.

Forum Origin, Diversity and Territories

October 13, 2021

Grisons, Switzerland

Rural territories are going through an unprecedented crisis, testing the resilience of their communities and ecosystems. This has repercussions on natural resources and their preservation, as well as on socio-economic networks, which have become increasingly fragile.

In this context of uncertainty, the actors of the territory have the important task of adapting the governance of the territories, to give perspective to the trajectories of sustainable development and to innovate the modes of consumption and production in the territories.

Organised by MOVING partner, Origin, this year’s edition of the Forum aims to participate in the writing of local solutions and invites participants to draw together the contours of new paradigms for the territories.
