International Mountain Day
  • International Mountain Day is commemorated all over the world on December 11 annually.
  • The day is observed to spread awareness about the significance of mountains to life, to highlight the opportunities and constraints in mountain development and to build alliances that will bring positive change to mountain peoples and environments around the world.
  • “Mountain biodiversity” is the theme of this year’s International Mountain Day, so let’s keep their rich biodiversity, as well as address the threats they face.
