CIPRA Slovenija

Organizer: CIPRA Slovenija

Theme: This year’s Fire in the Alps will take place in two parts: the presentation of the Kredarica (highest mountain hut in Slovenia) electrification plans will serve as a starting point for discussing the future of mountain tourism regarding to sustainability. And the fires will light a few days later.

12. August (10.30 AM in Slovenian Alpine Museum in Mojstrana): In the first part, we will focus on the (now stopped) plans for the electrification of Kredarica. What would such an intervention mean for mountain nature? What is the position of the competent organizations? What kind of mountain visits do we prefere for the future?

14. August (in the afternoon, we will announce the exact time later): This year we will light fires in the Karavanke, on Zabreška planina. It is about 2 hours hike from a starting point by the lake in Završnica.
