Regional economic cycles

The promotion of regional economic cycles is crucial if we want to avoid transport. A global economy causes environmental pollution because of long-distance transport, whereas a local flow of goods eliminates this pollution. In addition, it promotes quality of life, e.g. by regional and seasonal specialities which arrive on the table fresh. If you choose regional products when shopping, you are actively contributing to the prevention of unnecessary freight transport.

Alpine Initiative

The Alpine Initiative is a Swiss association. In 1989 the association launched the popular initiative "for the protection of the Alpine region from transit traffic", that was accepted on the 20th February 1994 by a majority of both the Swiss population and the cantons.
