The Alpe Cimbra aims to a more sustainable tourism
Karl Birti, Councillor of the City of Lavarone, for 5 years has been committed to promoting a sustainable and innovative mobility project. Following his idea, the mayor of Lavarone pursued the nomination, also involving the Community of the Cimbrian Highlands and the Mayors of Folgaria and Lusérn.
Promoting a different kind of tourism, respectful of the environment, was already the focus of Lavarone. It is no wonder, in fact, if for a couple of years this beautiful lake has received the Blue Flag of Europe award. In addition, there are several measures taken by the Library of Lavarone to raise awareness about sustainable tourism.
