Many inspiring welcoming practices are found across the Alpine region. We examined 34 examples to filter the key issues and target groups they address. These gave us an idea of what to consider in social planning at the municipal and regional level, e.g. the need to include newcomers in the economic, cultural, social and political-legal spheres of community, the relevance of language skills of newcomers/migrants, the training of administrative staff in making contact with newcomers/migrants, the need to make available housing for all community members, to name just a few.

While a large part of the projects targets all community citizens, many aim at forced migrants (refugees, asylum seekers), volunteers, social workers, but also at voluntary migrants, public institutions, the business sector, operators of the creative and cultural sector, and so on.
