The course will visit sites where there are conflicts between different types of land use, and will point out some of the management strategies that are being adopted to resolve problems. 

Throughout, we will be considering the key types of information needed to monitor change, and whether there might be alternative management approaches to those already adopted.

Facing the challenge of the global change the course aims to develop an intensive educational programme in environment-analyses,  -monitoring and stakeholder consultation with regard to sustainability of the alpine regions in Europe.

Based on field visits a series of practical methods will  be demonstrated and used, concerning

  • Selection of key ecosystem and landscape indicators
  • Monitoring at different scales
  • State of environmental changes
