Fires aglow for alpine protected areas

Jun 03, 2004 / zopemaster
The "Fire across the Alps" event aims to send a glowing message on behalf of alpine policy in 2004, too. The emphasis this year is on alpine protected areas. Other "pot burners" include transit traffic and local issues. The fires also symbolise the solidarity between alpine countries and regions.
On the night of 14th and 15th August they are to burn in as many sites as possible from Vienna to Nice.
Past experience has shown that media coverage of the event is good. It is therefore all the more important for the organisers and other signatory organisations to communicate a manifesto of demands relating to the chosen issues. The campaign is being co-ordinated by CIPRA Switzerland. To register fires for the event visit the "Fire across the Alps" web site, which also has a list of the venues: www.feuerindenalpen.org (de/fr/it/en).
