Celebrate with us the International Day of the Mountains 2021!

CONDESAN, the Humboldt Institute and UNEP are celebrating the mountains this year with the implementation of the event Bridges in the Andes: Transiting towards Sustainability, from December 8 to 10, 2021. The event includes a Virtual Conference on Transitions towards Sustainability in Scenarios of Environmental Change in the Andes and the First National Meeting of Experiences on the Integrated Management of Paramos in Colombia.

The purpose of this meeting is to create several open spaces to promote multi-actor dialogues and to have the opportunity to assemble a broad and transdisciplinary view of the main advances in the last 20 years since the celebration of the 1st International Mountain Day, and the challenges for the future for the integrated management and transition towards sustainability in Andean ecosystems, landscapes and societies.

The event will be developed around three broad themes:

  • climate change and ecosystem monitoring;
  • multi-actor and multi-level governance; and
  • sustainable land management, conservation and restoration.

These topics will be developed in four spaces (Keynote Conferences, Academic Sessions, Experience Panels and Meetings Between Peers), through which we seek to involve a large group of actors and build bridges between different sectors that have direct and indirect influence on the management and conservation of Andean socio-ecosystems.

The Academic Sessions and Experience Panels are open for the participation of researchers, practitioners, project implementers, decision makers, local technicians, etc., so that they can present the latest findings of their research and the progress on their efforts for promoting sustainable management carried out in different scenarios.
