South Tyrol's Active Family Village #1 has been taking a completely new, green approach for a year now. The focus is on a responsible approach to the environment and agricultural greenery. The goals of the committed environmental protection project: active awareness raising and attentiveness towards the unique natural treasures of the UNESCO World Heritage Dolomites. Together with the neighbouring municipality of St. Vigil, several ambitious initiatives have already been launched under the name Olang goes Green. Further green projects will be launched and put into practice periodically. The clear goal of all efforts is mindful interaction in the mountains & in the valley - regardless of whether hikers, bikers or skiers.
💚 Mindfulness on the mountain
💚 Waste avoidance
💚 Economical use of drinking water
💚 Green events
Those who follow simple rules actively participate in environmental protection and ensure in no time at all that their ecological footprint in the unique natural landscape of the Dolomites is kept as small as possible. True to the motto: Increase your bikeprints, reduce your footprints.
Help us to reduce the emission of exhaust gases to a minimum and refrain from turning on the engine when the windows are iced up before you leave. Better treat yourself to a coffee or use an ice scraper 😊
Did you already know? There is a very good ski bus service in Olang.
We remind you that the engine should be turned off at a stop (art. 157 of the Road Traffic Code).Flyer
Our mountain scenery is a delicate ecosystem. It is extremely important not to leave any rubbish behind: the climate conditions at this altitude slow down decomposition processes. Some waste, such as plastic, does not degrade at all. It merely disintegrates into microplastics, which stays in the environment.
The best kind of waste is waste that is never produced in the first place.
In Olang you can confidently fill up your own bottle with the best tap water without having to buy a new bottle of water every time. All refilling stations with the label "Mindful on the mountain" are connected to the public drinking water network and are therefore regularly tested and certified.
Local products are very popular, particularly since everyone knows how much value South Tyroleans-Südtiroler place on their living space within nature. Organically grown products are carefully processed and sold fresh from the farm. Meat and dairy products come from animals that are raised with farming methods that are appropriate for the species and then processed into fine specialties using artisanal skill. Trust is quickly built with local producers, and sometimes one farmer or butcher or another will even let visitors watch as products are prepared.More
Sustainability is becoming a major priority in our lives.
We, as the Kronplatz/Plan de Corones ski area, want to contribute to the protection of our environment.Sustainability | Kronplatz
The value-bench is a wood-bench, she is coloured and original, made from students, teachers, employees or inhabitants of a town. The benches were collocated on streets, which lead to schools, to work or in public zones. The value-benches invited people to stop, to contemplate or to initialise a dialogue between young and old. Thanks to the originality of the value-bench the identity is resulting and the invitation to the communication is be forced the communication in a place, to give a meaning sense.More
