Born from an original curatorial project by Lagazuoi EXPO Dolomiti, the Lagazuoi Winning Ideas Mountain Awards tell the state of the art technology, design and communication related to the mountains. The second edition of the WIMA has renewed the commitment to put in the limelight talents, innovation and green tourism related to the mountains and sustainability.
Materials, technologies, never tested applications, high tech solutions: Many future visions of possible sustainability, such as a recyclable shoe that turns into a ski boot shell, a start-up that helps reduce one’s environmental impact, a concert hall entirely made of snow in which "glacial” concerts are held, an example of regenerative cuisine with cycle management in a former barn. Furthermore, a shoe that "reads" how you ski, a "space suit" for snow adventures, a village that has become a widespread museum, an app to discover peaks.
Immersed in the unique scenario of Mt. Lagazuoi, the public can explore new concepts. The selection and examination of the projects was entrusted to high-profile experts: journalists, representatives of organizations and associations, researchers, entrepreneurs who valued the most interesting projects on the national scene.
The juries - made up of students from the most prestigious universities, enrolled in masters and faculties from the specific areas of expertise - have determined the winners in each category: mountain clothing and equipment; sustainable mountain tourism; digital innovation & apps; mountain gastronomy industry.
