Nives Meroi, Hans Kammerlander and Denis Urubko made their debuts at the IMS 2010

Dear Ladies and Gentleman, international officials and representatives of alpine and mountain sports associations met at the International Mountain Summit to discuss about sustainable tourism in the mountains.
Nives Meroi, Hans Kammerlander and Denis Urubko made their debuts at the IMS 2010

IMS devoted to sustainable tourism

This IMS Congress was jointly hosted by the Alpine Convention, the Carpathian Convention and the UN Environmental Program. Speakers noticed a return to traditional values in mountain tourism – calmness, environmental virginity / virgin landscapes and a slow-down in the rhythm of life are gaining importance. The increasing popularity in mountain sports holds economic prospects , however it can also jeopardize a sustainable use of mountain resources. Marco Onida (Alpine Convention), Ingo Nicolay (UIAA) and Nazir Ahmed Sabir (Pakistan Alpine Club) agree that interregional cooperation and a harmonization of policies promoting quality and containing growth bear have a huge potential in improving sustainability in mountain tourism.

In a video message, Valentino Izzo of the European Commission underscored the necessity to form local networks. As a representative of the Alpine Convention, Marco Onida underscored the importance of mountain tourism as an economic factor, but he advised against too much show and folly in the Alps. Pier Carlo Sandei illustrated the importance of the Carpathian Convention to the seven member countries: “Protection zones can become an economic factor”, he explained and demanded an integrated tourism concept for all affected regions.

In the afternoon, Nives Meroi invited to her presentation about the successful climb of K2 together with her husband Romano. Denis Urubko displayed impressive pictures from his home mountain region in Kazakhstan and new routes onto the eight-thousanders. In the last presentation, Hans Kammerlander took his audience on a visual journey from his youth in South Tyrol to the world’s highest mountains.


Tomorrow, Friday 5 November, the IMS Congress will be devoted to another exciting topic: “Rescue from the world’s highest mountains”. Thanks to the initiative of the EURAC Institute of Mountain Emergency Medicine and its head Dr. Hermann Brugger, this convention, which is the first of its kind in the history of mountain sports, will gather international medical experts, experienced alpine rescuers / rescue associations and top alpinists Reinhold Messner and Simone Moro to debate the usefulness of establishing a permanent air rescue in Nepal.
