International Mountain Day

International Mountain Day

International Mountain Day is observed annually on December 11th to raise awareness about the importance of mountains and the need to protect mountain ecosystems and communities around the world.

Mountains cover about 27% of the Earth’s land surface and are home to over 1 billion people. They provide critical ecosystem services, such as freshwater, biodiversity, and climate regulation. However, mountain ecosystems are also under threat from climate change, deforestation, overgrazing, and other human activities.

International Mountain Day was first designated by the United Nations General Assembly in 2003, and it provides an opportunity to highlight the unique challenges faced by mountain communities and promote sustainable mountain development. The day is also an opportunity to celebrate the cultural and recreational value of mountains and to raise awareness about the need to protect them.

Events and activities are held around the world to mark the day, including community festivals, hiking and climbing expeditions, art and photography exhibitions, and conferences and workshops.

Overall, International Mountain Day is an important reminder of the value of mountains and the need to protect them for future generations.
