NETWORKING BETWEEN THE MOUNTAINS
Organisers: CIC and -Anita Pinagli- Kärntner Bergwanderführerin
Due to the Coronavirus restrictions, our perception of space and sense of place changed. Many people avoid gathering or staying in closed spaces.
Carinthia offers an incredible opportunity to use its open spaces between or on top of the mountains to meet, make friends, learn another language and discover different cultures and their history. This is especially important for people who recently moved to Austria. They have difficulties making friends and feel isolated in a foreign country and still do not have a good relationship with the German language!
Together we can find a solution to these problems: let’s network between our mountains together! The area around Villach offers many different mountain peaks to conquer! The inconvenient point is that mountains are not always accessible to everybody. Mountains are an entity with their own will: you need to know their language and you need to learn to respect it! So it will respect you!
"I am Anita Pinagli, a qualified Carinthian wander mountain guide (Bergwanderführer) and I would like to share my knowledge with you".
“Networking between the mountains” is a project which allows people to acquire basic knowledge about how to approach the local mountains, which rules to follow and what are the hidden dangers you can encounter along your hike.
This project is open to all anyone that wants to discover the right approach in order to discover this new landscape!
At the beginning of this project there will be the chance to attend a 2 introduction evenings in the CIC seminar room, on request they can be held in English but also in Italian or Spanish.
Thursday 6 OCT 2022 at 7 pm: MOUNTAINS WITH NO BORDERS! AN UNIQUE PLACE TO WALK ACROSS 3 BORDERS!
This appointment is thought to give you a brief introduction to the hike possibilities this region can offers for a starter entry level. We will have a look at the geology and morphology of Carinthia, Italy and Slovenia mountains to identify the most suitable areas where to walk.
Thursday 13 OCT 2022 at 6 pm MOUNTAINS FOR BEGINNER: YOU RESPECT THEM... THEY WILL RESPECT YOU!
In this second appointment of " NETWORKING BETWEEN THE MOUNTAINS" we will learn the basic rules for a safe hike in the mountains. We will analyse the dangers during a walk and the manners in which we can avoid them. A special part will be dedicated to the equipment ment to be with us during a hike.
We will train to prepare our ideal mountain backpack for our future tours! The second part of this project will give you the change to come with me and discover the region!
