One of the innovations to feature as part of the 2019 UIAA Mountain Protection Award is the Community Award. This initiative provides the opportunity for the general public to recognise the projects they feel most deserving of support.
Throughout the past month, the 12 projects showcased as part of the 2019 UIAA Mountain Protection Award have been profiled on the UIAA’s Facebook channel. The four projects to provide the highest audience engagement figures will now be shortlisted for a final poll to decide the Community Award winner.
The four shortlisted projects are:
Alpine Learning Project – Swiss Alpine Club (pictured)
Mountain Sports Center – Alpine Club of Iran
Converting Organic Waste to Compressed Biogas and Fertiliser – Gandaki Urja
Ama Dablam 2020 – High Altitude Mountain Cleaners
The poll will launch on Saturday 28 September and close on Saturday 12 October. The winner will be confirmed on Monday 14 October.
The overall winner of the 2019 UIAA Mountain Protection Award as well as the runner-up and best new initiative will be announced at the 2019 UIAA General Assembly on 2 November.
