Pitch your Project 2020

The European Commission aims to actively involve young people when it is about to shape a sustainable future for the Alps. Therefore and within the framework of the EU Strategy for the Alpine Region (EUSALP) the competition "Pitch your Project" has been initiated which is open to all young people between 16 and 25 years.

Under the slogan “Your Alps! Your Future! Your Idea!” the youth is called on to submit their project ideas for an attractive, modern and sustainable development of the Alpine region until October 31st, 2020.

Taking part is worthwhile: The representatives of the 5 best project ideas will be invited to the EUSALP Annual Forum in Nice on December 10th and 11th. At the Forum, the candidates of the TOP 5 projects will present their projects in a pitching session to an audience of international experts. The audience will then directly vote on which three projects will receive the prize money of 5,000, 3,000 and 2,000 Euros respectively for their implementation.

Some further information:
The projects can be submitted by groups or individuals. In the pre-selection process a jury will assess all submitted projects in two age categories: 16 to 19 year olds and 20 to 25 year olds. The competition rules with the focus topics 2020 as well as the application form can be downloaded from the EUSALP-youth website.

Some good suggestions from the winning projects 2018 and 2019 available here.
