Join us for International Mountain Day 2020
Every year on December 11th, the world pays special attention to mountain peoples and places for International Mountain Day, which was created by the United Nations to highlight the important environmental, economic, social and spiritual benefits of mountains.
This year’s theme is mountain biodiversity, as the topography of mountain regions makes them cradles and refugia for abundant and diverse life. Mountain regions are critical for biodiversity conservation in a changing world given their extent and coverage of such a wide spectrum of environments.
The Canadian Mountain Network (CMN) is planning a social media contest, webinars, a podcast and more for International Mountain Day 2020. Stay tuned by visiting internationalmountainday.ca to learn what CMN is planning, and follow us on Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn for updates. You can already participate in CMN’s social media contest (details below)!
