It is a 1-2 days event, whose participation is voluntary and requires an additional fee.

In a relaxed and outdoor-oriented atmosphere participants can indulge in Systemic Design talks, critically assess the visited projects and provide feedback to the MVI and the community of Ostana.
The MVI is a real-world laboratory for research on sustainability transitions and Systemic Design. Thanks to the collaboration with international partners and research centres the MVI engages in various related research topics, such as resilience of mountain social-ecological systems, alpine urbanism, renewable energy transition, forestry and wooden constructions, cradle-to-cradle design, Systemic Design applied to the mountain space, responsible tourism, environmental change and circular economy.
During the 1-2 days visit there will be the opportunity to briefly review the conference sessions, deepen social contacts and have a relaxed learning and doing time in a beautiful and stimulating mountain environment.
