    #70 (fr) En passant par la montagne | Via Alpina Youth

    Dans le cadre du projet Via Alpina Youth nous avons effectué un stage d’observation chez l’association « En passant par la montagne » à Chamonix. Nous avons eu l’occasion de participer à des excursions de projets et apprendre beaucoup de nouvelles choses sur l’inclusion en montagne. Dans un entretien avec Damien Urbain, chargé de projet chez l’association, nous avons approfondi notre intérêt et notre savoir.

    Production et modération : Sophie V. Mahlknecht

    The podcast was cofinanced by Movetia and European Union.

    #69 Nach der Flut: Wie Biosphärenparks mit Klimarisiken umgehen

    #69 Nach der Flut: Wie Biosphärenparks mit Klimarisiken umgehen

    Neben bekannten Naturgefahren wie Muren und Überschwemmungen betreffen auch Hitzewellen und Dürren den Alpenraum immer häufiger. Das internationale Projekt MultiBios erforscht gemeinsam mit Biosphärenparks in Deutschland, Österreich und der Schweiz, wie sich betroffene Gemeinden und Regionen besser auf multiple Klimarisiken vorbereiten können. In dieser Ausgabe des CIPRA Podcasts reisen wir mit dem Projektteam nach Bad Kleinkirchheim, einer Tourismusgemeinde im Kärntner Biosphärenpark Nockberge. Dort und im nahegelegenen Gegendtal haben Starkregen und Hochwasser 2022 enorme Schäden angerichtet, eine Person kam dabei ums Leben. Was ist seitdem geschehen und wie bereitet sich die Region auf das nächste Hochwasser vor? Bei einem Lokalaugenschein und Gesprächen mit Menschen vor Ort erfahren wir Näheres.

    #68 Should I stay or should I go? Young people and quality of life in the Alps | CYC podcast

    #68 Should I stay or should I go? Young people and quality of life in the Alps | CYC podcast

    On the occasion of its tenth birthday, the CIPRA Youth Council explored the theme of quality of life from a youth perspective. On 1 July 2023, the members organised a podcast workshop, followed by a panel discussion with Joanna Kornacki from the Austrian Alpine Association, Axel Giottonini from the Youth Forum of the Swiss Working Group for Mountain Regions and Tom Van de Plassche from “Protect Our Winters Italy”. After the panel session, the participants shared their opinions on quality of life in the Alps in a recorded group discussion. This special episode provides a unique perspective on the views and opinions of the younger generation living in the Alpine region.

    #67 (en) Visitor guidance and the Alpine Convention | speciAlps podcast

    How can the legal framework alpine convention help guiding visitors of alpine regions in order to preserve nature? This is what we talk about in this episode with Wolfger Mayrhofer, Deputy Secretary General of the Alpine Convention.

    In this episode, we also learn more about the genesis and the background of the tourism protocol of the Alpine Convention, which was signed in 1998 by all states among the Alpine Arc as well as the EU.

    With our speciAlps podcast series, we want to gather knowledge and contribute to the exchange of experiences across the Alps.

    This project is being implemented by CIPRA International and the Alliance in the Alps network of municipalities. It is made possible by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety & Consumer Protection (BMUV).

    #66 (en) The urban exodus and the climate

    Many mountain regions in the Alps are affected by out-migration. However, climate change is also causing some people to migrate - at least temporarily - from the city to the mountains, as an Italian research project shows. We interviewed Andrea Membretti from the University of Turin, who coordinated the project called MICLIMI.

    Prolonged heatwaves, air pollution and new, climate-related diseases: Increasingly, people's own health is at stake, as the climate is changing dramatically for example in the northern Italian padan plane, also known as Po valley around Turin, Milan and Verona. But to which extent is climate change really increasing the likelihood of people moving from urban regions to mountain regions? This is what the research project MiCliMi tried to find out. It was launched by the italian branch of the European Climate Pact Ambassadors and completed in 2023. Andrea Membretti coordinated the project. He teaches sociology at the university of Turin. What role could climate change play in future for migration into alpine regions and why this is also a question of social justice – about this and more we talked to Andrea Membretti.

    #65 (en) How much is too much? Carrying capacities in Alpine tourism | speciAlps podcast

    From the Schrecksee lake in the Allgäu region of Germany to Hallstatt in Austria or Villnöss in Italy: the natural environment, local culture and geographically diverse habitats are the major attractions of mountain areas. In many destinations, tourist numbers are growing rapidly, which in turn puts pressure on local infrastructures, the environment and the population.

    We have dedicated our fourth podcast episode to the important topic of carrying capacities in mountain tourism. The term “carrying capacity” describes the number of tourists that a destination can manage. It is used in several disciplines and in everyday language. The podcast can be listened to in either Italian or English.

    With our speciAlps podcast series, we want to gather knowledge and contribute to the exchange of experiences across the Alps.

    This project is being implemented by CIPRA International and the Alliance in the Alps network of municipalities. It is made possible by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety & Consumer Protection (BMUV).

    The limits of tourism in the Alps are also discussed in the current episode of "Alpenrauschen" - a german language podcast produced and presented by Paul Kuncio from CIPRA Austria: https://www.cipra.org/de/cipra/oesterreich/alpenrauschen-podcast
