Ambito C

Soggetto Proponente
SAT - Società Alpinisti Tridentini

According to the by-law of the SAT – Società Alpinisti Tridentini (Association of the Hikers of Trentino) among the purposes of the association are: ‘the knowledge and study of the mountains', ‘the protection of their natural environment' and ‘the support to mountain populations'. In line with this approach, the idea was conceived to organise a training course on the planning and management of mountain areas organised in three editions that took place from 2011 to 2013. The initiative involved over one hundred participants, mostly young people, driven by cultural and professional interests and particularly sensitive to the issues concerning the mountain and its political, administrative, economic, social and cultural management. The travelling formula based on meetings held over the weekend at different venues in the mountain region, proved to be functional in relation to the different topics proposed and was appreciated by the participants as it allowed many of them to discover previously unknown places. The participants, with their expertise, focus and sensitivity, embarked on a journey of development of their knowledge and beliefs, as well as of gradual change of perspectives. This experience is a cultural heritage that must be accepted and promoted as a confirmation of the capacity of an attentive approach towards the mountain intended as a place to be lived rather than a space where forms of territorial governance and management are exercised.

Motivazione della Giuria

A cycle of training pathways structured into three different editions, using an original travelling formula throughout Trentino, which focused on the need to govern change, including economic and social change, with a special focus on ecosystem and landscape. The initiative is particularly relevant for its participatory and voluntary nature, as well as for the promotion of the landscape as a shared resource in mountain areas where landscape values are essential to the quality of life of the population.
