CIPRA (Ed.) (2007): Wir Alpen!: Menschen gestalten Zukunft. 3. Alpenreport. Bern: Haupt Verlag.
The new Alpine Report of the "Commission Internationale pour la Protection des Alpes" CIPRA shows how dedicated people work for the economic, social and cultural progress in the Alpine region. The book tells about people who get involved in order to find solution. Creative, innovative and successful. The CIPRA study "Future in the Alps" forms the basis of the book. The data collected in this study are presented in a complementary final chapter with many tables, graphs and maps that give a good insight into current spatial development trends in the Alps. The third Alpine report, which is published in German, French, Italian and Slovenian is directed at the same time at the Alpine population, tourists, as well as decision makers and specialist within and outside of the Alps – shortly, at all those people who care for the future of the Alps, and who are – in their daily work or in their leisure time – committed to an ecological and sustainable development of the Alps. )
