International Mountain Day : 11 December

Sustainable mountain tourism
The theme of this year's International Mountain Day (IMD) on 11 December will be sustainable mountain tourism.

Sustainable tourism in mountains can contribute to creating additional and alternative livelihood options and promoting poverty alleviation, social inclusion, as well as landscape and biodiversity conservation. It is a way to preserve the natural, cultural and spiritual heritage, to promote local crafts and high value products, and celebrate many traditional practices such as local festivals.

Mountain tourism attracts around 15 to 20 percent of global tourism. Tourism, however, is one of the sectors most affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, affecting economies, livelihoods, public services and opportunities on all continents. In mountains, the restrictions of the pandemic have further compounded the vulnerabilities of mountain communities.

This crisis can be seen as an opportunity to rethink mountain tourism and its impact on natural resources and livelihoods, to manage it better, and to harness it towards a more resilient, green and inclusive future.

In the coming months, FAO, leading UN agency for this International Day, will prepare communication materials in all six UN languages, which will be available on their website. Hard copies will be available upon request.

While sustainable mountain tourism is the suggested theme for 2021, countries, communities and organizations are welcome to celebrate IMD through a theme that is more relevant to them.

Celebrate this International Day 2021 with your community and friends preparing an event or joining the conversation on social media using the hashtag #MountainsMatter. Pass on some of the key messages, or share about the biodiversity in the mountains near you, or a photo of your favorite mountain.


Natural jewels we should treasure
Mountains are home to 15% of the world´s population and host about half of the world's biodiversity hotspots. They provide freshwater for everyday life to half of humanity. Their conservation is a key factor for sustainable development and is part of Goal 15 of the SDGs.

Unfortunately, mountains are under threat from climate change and overexploitation. As the global climate continues to warm, mountain people — some of the world’s poorest — face even greater struggles to survive. The rising temperatures also mean that mountain glaciers are melting at unprecedented rates, affecting freshwater supplies downstream for millions of people.

This problem affects us all. We must reduce our carbon footprint and take care of these natural treasures.

The increasing attention to the importance of mountains led the UN to declare to 2002 the UN International Year of Mountains. The first international day was celebrated for the first time the following year, 2003.

Its roots date back to 1992, when the document “Managing Fragile Ecosystems: Sustainable Mountain Development” (called Chapter 13), was adopted as part of the action plan Agenda 21 of the Conference on Environment and Development.

You can have your banner on top of this page where we have shared Wally Olin's sample banner type
The banner will be linked to your Corporate or Product or Service or NGO or Funding agency or Media or Philanthropic organisation.
No banners to political parties, politicians, erotic or porno websites, websites of naxalites, terrorists, activists, anti government as well as good sites which collect money for NGOs

Fees : Depends on whether it is Fortune 500 company or Forbes 2000 company or ...

Anyone not competing with their products can share their banner above them. e.g. No bank can share their banner above any Bank or no company which makes cars can share their banner above a company which has cars which they manufacture or sell.

Of the banner fees , Rs 3650/ - or USD 50/- will be used as Birthday philanthropist where we can share the name of the organisation with its link of the day of their registration (as their birth date) or to any individual with her or his birthdate. Our idea is to donate at least Rs 13433000/- to Thane because founder Sanjay Kumud Moreshwar Bapat's father (Bhau) did a Gift Deed of his house in Thane and gave it to founder and the government cost of property was Rs 13433000/- Founder does have that much money because his idea was to help others without money. But in the "court case" of his accident, result was given on the hasis of how much salary he has lost and founder hardly took money as salary. So now he is promoting good salary to NGO Leaders and Social Workers and term insurance because if the social worker expires on her or his life then they dont save money and the family faces issues of money. So after his almost fatal accident, he took term insurance and he is keen that philanthropist at least do term insurance for the NGO people they help.
