In the Alps, like elsewhere, the decline of the traditional heavy and manufacturing industry left behind impressive once-productive landscapes. These abandoned complexes can be revived and devoted to new purposes, with a transformation strategy geared to the natural, social and economic challenges each area faces. trAILS worked with the local communities of 4 pilot sites to give a new life to former industrial areas and devised tools for salvaging this heritage across the Alps: a webGIS map, an assessment tool, co-design procedures and learning modules.
