Cultural activities and exchanges
The work carried out by the Saussurea Foundation is primarily educational in nature, for which the foundation receives excellent feedback from the public, as well as recognition for its scientific achievements. It also engages in cultural exchanges with more than 300 university organisations and Alpine gardens, both within Italy and abroad. In addition, the foundation organises educational workshops and runs evening events on topics related to nature and the botany of mountain environments.
Every year the foundation publishes an Index Seminum (an inventory of seeds collected in the garden and the surrounding valleys) of 1000 species or thereabouts, which it shares with the above organisations.
