With the scope of opening up the UIAA Mountain Protection Award to even more people, the UIAA has published a dedicated flyer for the 2017 Award in five languages:
During its five years of existence, the annual UIAA Mountain Protection Award has made a tangible difference to mountain lives, communities and the environment. It has enabled people to raise finances to build key infrastructures, conduct vital research and fulfil pending goals; it has provided an international showcase and communication platform for projects to raise awareness and exchange ideas and initiatives. Not only has it supported local communities, it has fostered its own global community. The Award celebrates innovation and a desire to make a difference.
The application process for the 2017 Award is now open and closes on 30 June, 2017.
