11th World Congress of Snow and Mountain Tourism

March 23, 2022

Canillo, Andorra

The impact of COVID-19 has been undeniable and visible in all areas of society, but tourism is one of the sectors that has suffered the most. We now have to face the challenge of adapting the tourism offer to this new scenario that the pandemic has left us. The tourism of the future, in addition to being more technological and innovative, will have to be safer, more sustainable and more inclusive.

In order to reactivate this new generation of tourism, it is necessary to promote aspects such as artificial intelligence, digital transformation and sustainability, among others. We will talk about this reactivation and how to turn the current scenario
into an opportunity at the eleventh edition of the World Congress on Snow and Mountain Tourism, which will take place on 23, 24 and 25 March 2022 in Canillo, Andorra.

Mountain tourism, for which Andorra has always been a reference country, will also be renewed by all these changes and sustainability will be increasingly valued by tourists when choosing a destination. Andorra is fully committed to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, with innovation, new technologies and new models that will allow us to build a new way of understanding and experiencing tourism.

If you are a professional in the sector or have an interest in tourism, we invite you to attend the World Congress on Snow and Mountain Tourism on 23, 24 and 25 March 2022 in Andorra. In a unique natural setting, leading international professionals from the sector will explain their experiences in snow and mountain tourism and how to face the future.

The 7th International Congress of Mountain and Steep Slopes Viticulture will be, in May 2022, the most important opportunity to disseminate and update scientific and technical innovations of viticulture and oenology from Mountain regions.

The Congress is organised by the CERVIM – Center for Research, Environmental Sustainability and Advancement of Mountain Viticulture, on the patronage of the OIV – International Organisation of Vine and Wine, the Universidade de Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro (UTAD), the Associação para o Desenvolvimento da Viticultura Duriense (ADVID) and Faculdade Ciências da UP.

The event will be held at the University of Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro, in Vila Real, Portugal.

Alpine Landscapes in Transition: Infrastructure, Culture, and Climate

May 12, 2022

ETH Zürich Institute of Landscape and Urban Studies, Switzerland

This symposium is the opportunity to discuss past, ongoing, and future changes in the material and cultural reality of the Alps. It offers a moment of exchange and reflection to explore these transformations, following the development of industry, infrastructure construction, and climate change. This interdisciplinary gathering aims at consolidating the role of the spatial design and planning disciplines (architecture, landscape architecture, urban design and planning). Handling or even shaping new images of the Alpine landscape requires grounding these fields of practice both in contemporary scientific discourse, but also in the historical specificities of this cultural space. 

The event consists of two main parts: several workshops focussing on research, and an afternoon of round-table discussions.
