Mountain Day 2023

You are currently viewing Mountain Day 2023

The United Nations General Assembly designated December 11 as “International Mountain Day”. Restoration of mountain ecosystems is the suggested theme for 2023.
“Mountains cover about 27% of the planet’s land surface and are home to approximately half of the world’s biodiversity hotspots; they provide freshwater to half of the world’s population. They are also home to an extraordinary variety of plants and animals, and many culturally diverse communities with different languages and traditions. From climate regulation and water supply services to soil maintenance and conservation, mountains are central to our lives and livelihoods. However, mountains are suffering from the effects of climate change and unsustainable development, increasing the risks to people and the planet. Climate change threatens water flow and rapidly rising temperatures are forcing mountain species and the people who depend on these ecosystems to adapt or migrate.

The International Mountain Day 2023 is an opportunity to raise awareness about the relevance of mountain ecosystems and demand solutions, best practices and investments based on nature that build resilience, reduce vulnerability and increase the capacity of mountains to adapt to daily threats and extreme weather events”.
