As part of the projects “Climate Traces (Klimaspuren)” and “Swiss SDG Tourism Dialogue”, the University of Applied Sciences of the Grisons, together with the Alpine Initiative and the StudentHUB of the University of Applied Sciences of the Grisons, is organizing a panel discussion on one of the most current issues facing Switzerland on its way to CO2 neutrality in 2050:

  • How can tourism and especially tourist mobility be CO2 neutral by 2050?
  • (How) can further shifts to the railways, compensation and CO2 taxation succeed?
  • Where does voluntariness end and is there a need for prescribed framework conditions?

In the year of the Swiss presidency of the Alpine Convention, representatives from tourism, mobility, politics and NGOs will discuss with each other how this goal can be implemented.

The event will be streamed on the internet (incl. English translation for a foreign audience). If possible, an on-site event will be held at the University of Applied Sciences of the Grisons for a limited audience (without translation), in accordance with all COVID-19 requirements of the Canton of Graubünden and the University of Applied Sciences of the Grisons.
