International Mountain Day 2012
Friday, December 7, 2012 at 7:00 PM
Utah Valley University Science Center Auditorium.
On behalf of the United Nations-affiliated Mountain Partnership Members from the state of Utah and Utah International Mountain Forum, a coalition of student clubs at Utah Valley University, we have the special pleasure to invite you to our gathering commemorating the 10th anniversary of the United Nations announced “International Year of the Mountains (IYM)” in 2002.
Our event will be held during UN officially declared “International Mountain Day (IMD),” where we will recognize many of the major contributions from the state of Utah to the global mountain agenda for the year 2012. Recognition will include: participating of the official Utah delegation at historic United Nations RIO+20 Conference in Rio, Brazil from June 18-21, 2012, the hosting of the third Women of the Mountains conference in Puno, Peru, from June 12-14, 2012, and the hosting of a special workshop and essay contest for Utah high school students on the topic of sustainable energy by UVU students. All of these events have made a difference in the lives of mountain communities and were recognized by the international community and the United Nations Mountain Partnership during 2012.
