ALPS is all about people and mountains. It focuses on issues wherever society is on the move. There might not be any easy answers, but we still need to talk about things: about the environment, nature, and climate change, and about the relationship between the urban and alpine worlds. Its exhibitions and events extend far beyond the scope of the Alps as a region. While ALPS is open to all points of view, it is anything but neutral: its aim is to inspire lifeworlds that are creative and constructive – not just for society but for every single one of us too.
