International Mountain Day Festival


Every year, International Mountain Day is celebrated on December 11. One seventh of world’s population lives in mountain areas, whereas remaining one third is largely dependent on the natural resources, originating in mountains. Thus, the awareness about preserving mountain ecosystem has become a need of an hour. To create awareness about the mountain issues, United Nations celebrate International Mountain Day with unique theme every year.

This year, Food and Agriculture Organization of United Nations has chosen Mountain Matters as a theme to celebrate International Mountain Day. Mountains play a crucial role in building an ecosystem of the planet. The vulnerability of the mountains feeds the climate change. Hence raising up an attention towards mountains is a need of an hour. This year's theme highlights the importance of mountains in water conservation, food planning, biodiversity and numerous other aspects.  
Giripremi has planned several programs to create awareness about the cause and emphasize the contribution of mountaineers to the development of an ecosystem of the mountain region.

With several events, Giripremi aims to reach more people to create awareness about mountains. Mountain lovers should not miss the opportunity to witness these mountainous events.
