the Alpine arc for nine days utilising sustainable means of transport
and trying out the various links that make up the chain of alternative

. The group will travel more than 1700 km between
Monaco, France, Italy, Austria, Germany and Slovenia by train, bicycle bus
and on foot.
The 2010 edition lets participants discover the culture of gastronomy
in the Alps at several level and intends to make this crossing an occasion to
communicate the Alpine Convention and its Protocols as tools for the
sustainable development of the Alpine region, easily transferable also to other
mountain regions of the world.
