More extreme weather events, less snow, too wet summers,
too dry summers.
|| Establishing high quality tourism,
culture tourism, and eco-tourism. Acknowledgment of culture
and landscape, prioritization on summer tourism, longer tourist
Declining quality tourism and increasing mass tourism,
establishment of a „mega party“-image. Declining duration of
overnight- stays, growing number of holiday homes.
|| Continuing of the current agro-subsidizing
system. Support of organic farming, subsidizing protection
forests, strengthening regional relations and product chains,
quality promotion – products & landscape, promoting
Mass production - instead of quality production funding,
loss of cattle ranching funding leads indoor cattle breeding, zero-grazing and
thus less landscape preservation) increase of free competition leads to a
decline of small scale farming, genetic engineering endangers organic production
|| Motivation to stay and work in
the valley, regeneration of the societal structure, population
growth, establishment of two or three generation households,
preservation of the village infrastructure with own municipality
council and mayor, preschools, schools, local brass band,
church choir, fire brigade.
|| Increased emigration and fewer
children leads to aging societies, future multinational immigration
(secondary residences, elderly homes, holiday apartments)
leads to decline of local resident population, loss of local
society cohesion and loss of rural infrastructure demands.
Establishment of a balanced summer and winter tourism.
Support of a controlled tourism (walking along trails, nature conservation),
appreciation and consumption of local products to gain added value, focus on
|| Growing "mega-party"-tourism,
declining interest of young local people in tourism business.
The region is established as economic location,
diversification increases, small trade businesses and craft businesses are
protected, number high quality jobs increases, and number of tourism workplaces
Strict profit-oriented development, dependence from
single branches, business closure and emigration, big retail chains force small
local shops to close.
Support of the villages as habitation, village centres
are established as centres of local life, terraced housing reduces housing area
Main residence status of local inhabitants is preserved,
new attractions for youth and families will be established.
Settlement expansion by too many single family houses
leads to reduction of open space and less social coherence.
Transformation of secondary residences as main
residences outnumbers local population.
Less commuter traffic through new jobs in the valley,
local public transport extended, traffic calmed areas erected, cycle path
network established, traffic bypass via tunnel.
|| Loss/reduction of public transport
infrastructure, and decline of local job numbers lead to increasing
commuting rates and individual transport.
Preservation of small structured farming and protection
of young successors in (secondary occupation) - farming. Farm work is judged as
important and attractive.
Loss of small-scale farming structure reduces local
landscape caring potential. Abandonment of land in middle elevation ranges
leads to re-forestation:
| Environment and nature
Conservation of biodiversity and resources provided, no
opening of untouched landscapes; environmental awareness in all
|| Landscape patchiness and biological
diversity decreases (e.g., rich meadows instead of less fertile
grassland), forests expand and reduce open space, resources
get lost, opening up of additional pasture areas for skiing.
Traditional cultural landscape is preserved, scenic
landscape is secured.
|| Forest expansion leads to "dark,
monotonous landscapes", removal of landscape elements
reduces biodiversity, built-up areas and sealing of land reduces
attractiveness of the valley floors.
| Arts and culture
|| Encouraging of regional cultural
initiatives to establish a rich offering of local cultural
amenities. Provision of infrastructure for local cultural
events, central culture event marketing. Art and cultural
goods are accepted and demanded.
|| Cultural identity gets lost: decline
of clubs and societies, traditional costume, old knowledge
and habits get lost: local identity, local history.
