“Your Alps ! Your Future ! Your Idea !”

Here we go ! The sixth edition of EUSALP’s “Pitch Your Project” competition has been launched.

Who can take part ? The competition is open to all young people in the Alpine region (see map below) aged between 16 and 25.

How does it work ? All young people have the opportunity – individually or in groups – to set up a project aimed at enhancing the attractiveness and sustainable development of the Alpine region. The competition can also be run as part of school, student or association projects. 

The process ? Young people have until September 10 to submit their project, then the jury will deliberate and the candidates who have submitted the 5 best projects will have the opportunity to present them during the final, which will take place in Strasbourg, a city that symbolizes Europe, in the third week of November.

The prizes : Three projects, three prizes of 2,000, 3,000 and 5,000 euros each, to be used towards their realization. 

This year, four themes are proposed for the projects to be submitted :

  • How to respond to climate change and promote sustainable management of resources, particularly water ?
  • How to reinforce sustainable mobility and develop the use of renewable energies ?
  • How can we strengthen the circular economy based on short circuits and enhance the value of Alpine crafts ?
  • How can we improve social inclusion in the Alpine region and create intergenerational links through digitalization ?
