Mountain InfoZone

A Program of the Telluride Institute

The Mountain InfoZone Program

The Mountain InfoZone Program, initiated in 2021 by the Telluride Institute, is being designed to extend the objectives of the UN Mountain Partnership’s “Communications Strategy”, by furthering global communications interactions, research, learning, access to tools, investments, decision-making and collaborative sustainability works on the ground, from 2021 through 2030.

Networking connectivity, applications and eco-social processes are key to achieving the SDGs.

Mountain InfoZone intends to help meet and advance the 2030 Agenda for Mountains, the UN Secretary-General’s 2020 Roadmap for Digital Cooperation, and UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed’s April 2021 call before the General Assembly, for widespread action to bridge growing digital divides, as critical to achieving 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
