The Alps offer great potential for renewable energy production. But this simultaneously increases the pressure on nature. The partners in the international recharge.green project have found ways to ensure this balancing act succeeds. They will be presenting their results at the final conference to be held on 20-21 May 2015 in Sonthofen, Germany.
Youthful ideas for “My Green Alps”!
What will it take for residents of the Alps to take responsibility for their own habitat? Participants of the Youth Parliament of the Alpine Convention provided some answers at Kamnik in Slovenia.
The Youth Parliament to the Alpine Convention (YPAC) has annually been taking place since 2006. This year’s YPAC has been organised in cooperation with the recharge.green project.
The Alps have great potential for the use of renewable energy. This, however, means increasing pressures on nature. What could be the impact of such changes on the habitats of animals and plants? How do they affect land use and soil quality? How much renewable energy can reasonably be used? Download the recharge.green project results
