Respect the mountain
Sustainability and a mindful approach to our natural landscape are very important to us. The Dolomites Region Seiser Alm is part of the Schlern-Rosengarten nature park. It is a protected area and a part of the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage.
The project “Respect the mountain” aims to raise awareness of environmentally friendly conduct among visitors, locals and tourism professionals in the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Site. It seeks to encourage everyone to act respectfully and responsibly in the mountains as well as in everyday life. Its key topics are potable water and waste prevention.
South Tyrolean tap water is potable and of a high quality. Some of our guests, even some of our locals, are not aware of this and feel safer using bottled water. The project “Respect the mountains” teaches tourism professionals, locals and guests about the high quality of our potable tap water and how to use it carefully and respectfully.
The best kind of waste is waste that is not produced in the first place. All waste that does occur must not be left in nature but disposed of appropriately. “Respect the mountains” advocates planning ahead to prevent producing waste.
