Applications are open to any town in the Alpine region that is willing to prove that ecology and economy – rather than being mutually exclusive – can complement each other sensibly and in a way that sets the trend for the future. The title commends an Alpine town for its particular commitment to the implementation of the Alpine Convention. The Alpine Town of the Year Association has formulated five objectives designed to guide future Alpine Towns of the Year in their choice of projects and events.

The application form is available in the website’s other language versions (German, French, Italian, Slovene).
