International Mountain Day is celebrated every year on December 11, 2023. The United Nations General Assembly designated the day for the first time for the commemoration every year. As per the UN, “Mountain hosts about half of the world’s biodiversity hotspots and 30% of all key Biodiversity Areas.” Mountain freshwater holds immense importance as it serves more than fifty percent of the human population’s everyday life activities.
The celebration of International Mountain Day is done to raise awareness about the need to protect and potential threats that can impact avalanches. Conservation of Mountains is included in Goal 15 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs. Due to the overexploitation of mountains and climate change, these are under crucial threat, hence their conservation is the need of the hour.
Mountains hold immense importance not only for people living there but also for thousands and lakhs of individuals living in the lowlands. Mountains play a crucial role in maintaining the water cycle and the world’s major rivers originate from here.
Every year International Mountain Day is celebrated with a particular theme. This year in 2023 the theme for International Mountain Day is, “Restoring Mountain Eco-System.”
International Mountain Day aims to focus on the development of this naturally occurring phenomenon and the opportunities to save it. It is also important to educate people and spread awareness about the role of mountains, and their impact on people’s life and environment.
The celebration of this day is done in various ways. Numerous events, hikes, art competitions, photos, student debates, presentations, hands-on activities, and forums, are organized and targeted at specific groups.
