Alpine Pro­tec­tion Forest Award

Helvetia is the official partner of the Alpine Protection Forest Award presented by the Consortium of Alpine Forestry Associations. The objective of the consortium is to rectify interregional and international problems relating to forest management in the Alpine region.

Since 2006, the Consortium of Alpine Forestry Associations (ARGE) has each year honoured exemplary projects aimed at ensuring the proper management of protection forests and their sustainability as well as the maintenance of a balance between people and nature in Alpine regions. It does so in the following categories:

  • Protection forest partnerships - PR work - innovation
  • Success project
  • School projects
  • Special award
  • Protection forest guardian

All winners receive a wooden sculpture by the Tyrol artist Helmut Mayr and the nominated school classes can look forward to a contribution to their class fund.

The cooperation with the Consortium of Alpine Forestry Associations (ARGE) strengthens Helvetia’s ties with the Alpine countries and promotes knowledge and understanding of the protection forest.
