Minorstudy wishes, messages and greetings International Mountain Day & highlighting the need to bring young people back to highland areas to take care of their cultural and natural resources. Why forest and Animal rights? Since the early history of alpinism, the relationship with mountains has always been characterised by challenges. Challenges such as facing vertical walls and the forces of nature. Humanity’s desire to alter the landscape is treacherous. But considering nature as a mere bystander is also misguided. It actually talks to us, though maybe we aren’t able to listen to it anymore. To listen to its voice we leave plains and cities, we cross forests and climb mountains in search of that thread that broke long ago. Mountains, potentially terrible and dangerous, remind us of how small and imperfect we humans are and, especially, that the world doesn’t revolve around us. Why we celebrate mountains Mountains cover nearly 27 per cent of the Earth’s land mass and play a crucial role in sustainable economic growth. International Mountain Day is celebrated on 11 December and was established by the United Nations in 2002, on occasion of the International Year of Mountains, which was held in 2003. The celebration aims to increase awareness on the importance of mountains for the health of the planet and well-being of billions of people. Mountain areas are emptying out Strictly correlated to the reduction in food is the growth in migratory flows, as more and more people leave their mountainous birthplaces to move to urban centres or other countries.

The depopulation of such areas will result in an inestimable loss in terms of ecosystem services and the conservation of agrobiodiversity, as well as the extinction of many cultures that have developed among the wind, snow and wild animals. To reverse this trend, investments and policies that are able to alleviate the harsh conditions that mountains communities face are required. The 2019 edition, Mountains matter for youth In particular, it’s essential to favour young people’s return to mountain areas, so that they may contribute to revitalising them and safeguarding their vulnerable natural resources.
