At the Annual Forum in Milan the five young finalists of PITCH YOUR PROJECT 2019 presented their ideas live on stage.

The audience chose the three winners:

  • 2. Sofia Farina and Nicolas Rodigari from Italy propose to launch the complementary local currency “Edelweiss” in the Alpine Region to support the local economy. They received the 2nd place and 3,000 Euro.
  • 3. Alice Alcaini, Riccardo Omacini and Stefano Trapletti won the 3rd prize and 2,000 Euro. Their project “Don’t Drain Out Your Alps” wants to reduce hydrogeological risks with the help of terraces with dry-stone walls that collect and re-use rainwater.

The prizes were handed over by Jean-Pierre Halkin from the European Commission and the President of the French region Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, Marie-Marguerite Dufay.
