We are a small and passionate group of young, curious people who care about the holistic health (social, ecological, economical) of our mountain communities... so we are starting a network to connect others who think similarly!

We imagine this initiative as a supportive space to exchange ideas, create connections between projects, and learn how to bring sustainability science, design opportunities and creative thinking into our local alpine places we call home. It’s about connecting big dreams to the “here and now.”

Parliamo in Italiano e Inglese, e siamo un gruppo di persone aperte e dinamiche. Tutti sono benvenuti; per cui non esitate a condividere questo invito con altri che potrebbero essere interessati. Guarda i nostri eventi di seguito, per diversi modi di condividere conoscenze, idee e divertimento.

Because we are living in times of uncertainty, creative adaptation is the key. We are operating on a donation-based system. Sharing our resources (transportation / car-sharing options, snack supply, small financial help etc.) is key for the success of H&N events. We thank you very much in advance for your support. The following events are subject to change with COVID-19, and reach out to us through our email below if you have other initiatives and opportunities to share!


May 15th
(Virtual Aperitivo / Cena)

Let's celebrate our local and regional food traditions! Please join us for a virtual aperitivo/cena and bring with you a typical, traditional meal or food item from your area (trofie al pesto, agnolotti del plin, fårikål, maultaschen) wherever you are located! We can talk about how our local traditions can relate to Permaculture and Slow Food principles to think about ways of making (or keeping) our daily meals more regenerative.


June 19th
(To be defined)

Continuing the theme of solidarity and new alpine living, we plan to visit the rifugio and borgata Paraloup, as "Un nuovo modello di sviluppo sostenibile per la montagna." Transportation to Paraloup aims to be powered by clean electric energy, thanks to our E-Mobility event in Ostana the following day. Mountain biking in Valle Maira to follow. To be confirmed

July 24th
(Co-Create + Outdoor Play)

Let's come together and bring shared passions for music in the Valle Po. Local Occitian bands meet new age/techno music with a series of jam sessions around the village of Ostana. To be confirmed

October 09th
(Site Visit + Outdoor Play)

Join us in visiting our important local businesses combining tradition with innovative environmentally friendly principles, such as Calce Piasco. Together with La Banca della Calce, they produce CalceCanapa, an "eco-compatible building materials and products based on magnesium lime and hemp." Hiking or skiing in the nearby Valle Varaita will follow, with hopefully aperitivo / dinner together. To be confirmed
