Competition for young people for a sustainable development of the Alpine Region
Dear Members of the EUSALP Executive Board,
We are pleased to announce that the competition “PITCH YOUR PROJECT“ enters its third round.
Under the slogan “Your Alps! Your Future! Your Idea!” young people between 16 and 25 are 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.
PITCH YOUR PROJECT is part of youth.shaping.EUSALP. The competition follows the wish expressed by young people for structures that help them to implement and finance their project ideas. It is financed and organised by the European Commission and the Land Tirol and supported by the French EUSALP Presidency 2020.
Our request to you:
To ensure that as many young people from all Alpine states and regions as possible receive the chance to participate, we ask you to forward this information about PITCH YOUR PROJECT 2020 to interested institutions, schools, universities, youth organisations and young people. Please also share it via your websites and social media! A flyer in all EUSALP languages will follow soon.
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 years olds and 20 to 25 years olds. Detailed information and the focus topics 2020 in all Alpine languages are available on the following website:
