For the first time in order to offer the results and topics of the conference to a broader audience, a PUBLIC DAY -  will be organized, in cooperation with the Tyrolean Presidency of the EU Strategy for the Alpine Region (EUSALP) and the EUSALP Action Group 8, which deals with natural hazard management in the Alpine region.

The free event takes place in the Hal Innsbruck of the Congress Innsbruck on 10th October from 12:45. The main language during the afternoon will be German but translations into English are offered.

The Motto is:

Safe living space through new ways in risk management

The Alps are one of the most beautiful and valuable habitats in the world. The transformation of society and the effects of climate change have led to significant changes in recent years and present new challenges for risk
management for the development of a safe habitat in the mountains. The EU Strategy for the Alpine Region offers an opportunity to respond to these particular challenges of the Alpine space in close cooperation with 48 regions and seven states.The high-calibre afternoon event offers the audience insights into cooperative approaches on how to jointly protect the Alps as a living and economic area for sustainable development. The proposed solutions are then critically examined and discussed in a podium discussion by representatives from politics, practice and research.
