The Mountain General Assembly is a program of events such as conferences, workshops, round tables and promotion activities with the aim of building a strategic agenda for mountain areas setting out the priorities of different mountain areas and the action required.

On 20th May, in San Pellegrino Terme, there will be a preview event dedicated to summer tourism in mountain areas, and then on 10th June at the Green House in Zogno a conference entitled GOVERNANCE AND SPECIFIC POLICIES FOR MOUNTAN AREAS. Enrico Borghi – National Internal Areas Strategy Coordinator for the Presidency of the Council of Ministers and National Uncem President and Anna Giorgi – Director of the Mountain University, the Edolo Campus of the University of Milan, will take part in the roundtable.

Professor Anna Giorgi will focus on “Young start-ups, green economy, resilience, from a local to an Alpine macro-regional level”. Spreading knowledge and skills is the first step in creating innovative start-ups, led by young people. Attention should also be paid to the opportunities provided by the green economy, combining Alpine territory, competitiveness, sustainability and enhancement of local resources. The interaction between tradition and innovation is the basis for relaunching sustainable development in mountain areas.
