By promoting responsible mountain tourism and supporting key stakeholders active in mountain protection.
The UIAA Mountain Protection Award is two-fold:
- It serves as a crowdsourcing platform, whereby showcased initiatives can solicit funds and be promoted through this site as well as through the UIAA federations’ network (www.theuiaa.org).
- It promotes international recognition via its annual Prize award for the best initiative. The Award winner receives a Prize in the form of a cash grant and is invited to present its activities at the UIAA General Assembly.
