ABOUT US

The GlaciersAlive Association is a group of committed people from science, research, communication and administration who work for sustainable solutions to water issues.

We are both an international organization and a group of local actors. Together we can achieve positive developments in our own environment and worldwide.

In order for the mountain regions to fulfill their role as water castles for large parts of the world's population,
the interactions between water - agriculture and tourism can be optimally cultivated through effective projects.
