TranStat - Transitions to Sustainable Ski Tourism in the Alps of Tomorrow
News & Events


Today, mountain resorts stakeholders are faced with a common challenge: coping with the effects of climate change without having a robust reference framework for action. The TranStat project aims to facilitate the adoption of co-constructed transition processes in Mountain Resorts (MR), understood as ski resorts and their territory.

Based on a participatory & inclusive approach, TranStat will aim at elaborating scenarios and co-constructed solutions able to respond to the challenges identified in the MRs. The challenge is to promote new models of economic, social and environmental development in order to support a lively future in the Alpine mountain areas, with a view to sustainability.

TranStat will address this overall issue through the creation of a physical & digital network of resorts in transition to share knowledge and experiences about the future.

  • Stakeholder-driven Transition Method (STM)

    A practical, flexible and comprehensive collection of step-by-step instructions that supports Mountain Resorts in their participatory transition towards desirable futures by setting a Transition Framework and helping to identify, involve stakeholders in the transition processes and create a common understanding of desirable futures for them. It combines all created content within the WP with a heavy focus on stakeholders’ experiences and lessons learnt and will be part of the WP2.

  • Roadmap for transition processes

    Road map for transition processes : with a baseline and visual design, it will illustrate the different steps of the participatory approach : create the LLs, Diagnosis until the design of transition scenarios. In these different steps, the Roadmap will show and provide some concrete experiences based on the work done with and in the LLs and products from WP3 (A31 Transition pathways and 3.2 Short and ling-term thematic actions-sheets).

  • TranStat Policy Recommandation

    Based on the WP2 insights (A2.4) and the WP3 (A3.1), these policy recommandations will be structured on various chapters, one for Eusalp level and other for regional contexts. It will propose some adapted directions to swell the current policies to better support sustainable management in MRs.
