Building an Alpine-wide web of shepherding organisations
Conference: Jan 27, 2022 from 04:00 PM to 07:00 PM, on ZOOM
The return of large carnivores in the Alps has many consequences on alpine farming and on the work and practises of shepherding. CIPRA International invites representatives from shepherding organisations in the Alpine region, representatives from agricultural schools and organisations as well as responsible authorities that have developed curriculums for herders to a virtual conference to discuss needs and opportunities for a cross-border shepherd organisation. Eva-Maria cattoen will moderate the event.
Within the scope of the project ”Knowledge transfer on the co-adaptation of humans and wolves in the Alpine region“, a study was conducted to investigate the potentials and challenges for a cross-border shepherd organisation to master current and future challenges of the shepherding profession and to build transnational support and networking structures for shepherds. Building on the results of this project, CIPRA International invites to a virtual conference.
The conference is made possible through the ”Life Euro Large Carnivores“ project. It will be held only in English. There will be no simultaneous translation.
