Science for the Carpathians is organising a Winter School 2022. The aim of the School is to discuss the topics of sustainable development of the mountain areas in relation to the tourism-related hot spots. In the Carpathians, as in many other mountain areas, high biodiversity meets with outstanding landscape values. This triggers high pressure from humans, mainly from tourism-related activities. How do the Carpathian regions deal with that in times of climate change and biodiversity loss? Are the solutions implemented in one Carpathian region transferrable to others? And what can we learn from similar examples in other mountain areas, e.g. the Alps or Caucasus? – These are some of the questions we will pose and discuss together with the Winter School participants.
