Wednesday is International Mountain Day, an opportunity to promote the conservation and sustainable use of increasingly scarce resources from mountain areas.  Did you know that mountains are home to 12% of the human population and cover approximately one-quarter of the world’s surface? Or that some of the world’s largest cities, including New York, Rio de Janeiro, Nairobi, Tokyo and Melbourne, are dependent on freshwater from mountains?  Take a look at this animated video from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations to see how mountains are the key to the sustainable future we want: http://j.mp/1czvl31

I stayed in a village up high in the mountains. It is a beautiful view!
