Why we are here
Our mission is to facilitate positive interactions between mountain communities, natural environment and mountain sports outdoor companies, expedition agencies, mountain researchers and practitioners.
What we do
We contribute towards the sustainable development, as well as the environmental protection and regeneration of the mountainous regions, by facilitating positive interactions between mountain communities and visitors (mountain sports outdoor companies, expedition agencies, mountain researchers and practitioners).
Mountain Synergies intends to act as a knowledge sharing platform, collecting and disseminating best practices from around the world when it comes to outdoor activities in the mountains. Our focus areas are awareness and education, waste management, ethical and sustainable mountaineering.
Mountain Waste Gallery
There is value in waste when it is not lying out in the nature. It is a resource that can be recycled, bringing economic benefits to locals. It can have also an artistic value , as artist Florian Wolgangsson shows us below.

Otherwise, avoid creating more waste, reduce it, reuse it or event upcycle it whenever possible.
Everything starts home, before the expedition in the mountains, with a good planning!
For ideas and inspiration check out our Waste Management Manual!
We are a non-profit organisation, dedicated and committed people, who would like to change the approach of "using" mountain regions by fostering a positive relationship between the local communities living there and outside visitors (tourists, researchers).
