#MountainsMatter for Life
The United Nations choose #MountainsMatter as the designated International Mountain Day theme for 2018 to allow everyone an opportunity to celebrate through sharing why the mountains matter to them.
The world often takes for granted the permanence of these towering places, however, mountains are remarkably vulnerable to numerous impacts. Mountains also silently touch almost every aspect of our lives without us seeing that effect. From the economic impact of tourism to global food security to the water we drink, mountains deserve our attention and our reverence.
On December 11, celebrate International Mountain Day by using the hashtag #MountainsMatter and share how mountains matter to you.
Every story matters so let’s bring a focus to the mountains by sharing what we love about them.
