There are only 26 livestock farms left at Grundlsee in the Styrian Salzkammergut region — half as many as in the mid-1990s. To prevent further closures, the Landschaftspflegefond (landscape conservation fund) was set up in 2020 to provide financial support to local farmers.

The focus of this event is on the relationship between agriculture and tourism: is there a symbiosis or is it a space of conflict? Who owns the cultural landscapes that tourism promotes and who is responsible for their conservation? Who is authorised to use the landscape and how? Who is benefitting at whose cost?
