UIAA Mountain Protection Award 2021 Nomination

 

As most of you fellow alpine enthusiasts might know, the

UIAA (International Climbing and Mountaineering Federation)

was founded in 1932 and has a global presence on six continents representing 90 member associations and federations in 67 countries. 

It promotes the growth and protection of mountaineering and climbing worldwide.

Every year it runs the "Mountain Protection Award" contest,

where projects from all over the world are presented from local communities and outdoor organizations to introduce sustainable approaches and projects strongly linked to the mountains.

We are incredibly happy to announce that we have been nominated for the 2021 edition with our project

 

"SUSTAINABLE WASTE EVACUATION BY COMMERCIAL DRONES"

 

You can read about the whole concept, and it's step by step implementation on 

https://www.theuiaa.org/uiaa/expedtribe-mpa/

 

We would like to especially show our appreciation to the

ISA (International Slackline Association)

for the support shown towards our vision and for endorsing our vision with a support letter.

We hope this project will lead to a cleaner approach to evacuating trash in alpine environments for tour operators and commercial expeditions in the years to come.

 

Stay tuned for the upcoming awards in August!

 

Alpine regards,

Your Exped Tribe Team
