A COMPENDIUM OF IDEAS FOR A WORLD IN TRANSITION
The moment of now is as turbulent as it has ever been. Tremors across industry, across culture, across the environment, are profoundly reshaping us and our world. But it's too easy to get caught up in right now, and miss what it will all mean when the urgency fades. We started The Alpine Review as an attempt to understand those tremors from a long term point of view — to look at how what is happening around us is shaped by the past and will shape us in the future. We delve into the things that make us most curious, across all disciplines, and track the changes in thoughts and underlying systems that might point the way forwards. It’s a magazine about observing the things that matter, and the things that will continue to matter.
We're an independent magazine, made by a small team out of Montréal and Toronto, printed in Barcelona, distributed from Berlin, made partly for love but mostly for understanding. We're glad you've found us.
