We collaborate with other actors involved in awareness and education focusing on responsible mountain tourism and the sustainable development of mountain regions. Our aim is to contribute to influencing attitudes and changing behaviours regarding the way mountain sports practitioners, outdoor enthusiasts, mountain professionals, individuals and various organizations interact with the mountains and their local communities.
Mountain Synergies' activities in that field are a follows:
producing educational materials focused on sustainability in the mountains and responsible mountain tourism, with a focus on mountaineering and trekking;
developing projects that have a direct impact on raising awareness and promoting education regarding sustainability in the area of mountaineering, trekking and other mountain sports and activities;
acting as a bridge between the different actors involved in raising awareness and promoting education in relation to sustainability in the mountains;
promoting and supporting existing international agreements and frameworks related to sustainability in the mountains.
