Description

For centuries, life in the Alps was only possible through the judicious use and careful management of surface water. The oldest traces of dams, diversions, canals are present on mountain slopes everywhere, witnesses of a past where water was so important in the subsistence economy of the Alps as to require complex forms of self-government and to start conflicts, (the term ‘rival’ indicates precisely the one with whom we share access to the same ‘rivus’, i.e. stream).

Even now water is one of the main economic resources of the Alpine territory, around which huge interests revolve, ranging from hydroelectric power to drinking water to artificial snow. This pressure often leads to a profound alteration of Alpine river systems, the protection of which is indispensable especially in the current scenario of global climate change.

However, to protect requires knowledge and this Italian Mountain Lab project conference aims to increase knowledge of river systems and the implementation of eco-compatible and sustainable tourism systems.

The project for an Alpine Rivers Study Centre (ALPSTREAM) will also be presented, in collaboration with the Parco del Monviso.
