Application form


The EU Strategy for the Alpine Region (EUSALP) aims to actively involve young people when it is about to make the Alpine Region fit for the future. “PITCH YOUR PROJECT” is a competition for young people and young adults between 16 and 25 years. As experts of your living space, the Alpine Region, you are invited to submit your project ideas for a sustainable development of the Alpine Region individually or as a group.

Under the slogan “Your Alps! Your Future! Your Idea!” you are called on to submit your 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 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.
