International Mountains Day
When hiking, exploring or picnicking in your favourite mountain regions, resist the urge to take rocks, flowers or other mementos with you. Take any rubbish away with you when you leave home and bring home only photos and memories.

2 - Raise awareness
Raise awareness of mountains on December 11 by organising safe, socially distanced activities, including virtual presentations and events, photo and art competitions, and hikes.
3 - Get involved
Join the conversation on social media using the hashtag #MountainsMatter. Pass on some of the key messages or share about the tourism in the mountains near you. Post a photo of your favourite mountain moment and share it with your friends.
Wishing you and yours a wonderful festive season and a healthy and happy start to the New Year.
