United Nations Association of the United States (UNA-USA) posted a piece “International Mountain Day Celebration at the United Nations” on January 13, 2019. This was a result of the partnership established between the Utah International Mountain Forum (UIMF), a coalition of student clubs at Utah Valley University and UNA-USA and an another example of the UIMF efforts to raise an awareness about mountain targets in the State of Utah and North America. Samuel Elzinga, President of UIMF, who participated at the IMD celebration at the UN on December 11, 2018, wrote a piece.
According to the UNA-USA mission statement: “The United Nations Association of the United States (UNA-USA) is a movement of Americans dedicated to supporting the United Nations. With over 20,000 members (60% under the age of 25) and more than 200 chapters across the country, UNA-USA members are united in their commitment to global engagement and their belief that each of us can play a part in advancing the UN’s mission and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.”
