International Mountain Day History
International Mountain Day seeks to raise awareness of the effects of climate change on mountains. Mountains are critical for water, food, and clean energy. According to the United Nations, about half of the human population depends on mountains.
Today, mountains are under threat from climate change, land degradation, over exploitation, and natural disasters. Due to rising temperatures, mountain glaciers are melting at a rapid pace. This affects the freshwater supplies for millions of people.
