Mountain Publishing + Conferences + Events

Table of Contents

There are some international organizations that have been in existence for many years, which have shaped the fields of mountain research, education, policymaking, grounded activism, support, partnering and publishing.  Our mountain sustainability constituencies are growing and in need of evolving communications strategies.

All of the organizations and entities listed in this report have content-filled web sites, portals or at least a simple web presence.  Many are creators and disseminators of monthly newsletters, downloadable reports, journals and new media content.  In so many ways, we are all interactive digital media publishers.   While we also conduct and participate in conferences and meetings, valuing face-to-face contact and exchange, our times have pressed the issue of utilizing networked connectivity for virtual meetings, decision-making processes and creative sharing.

Publishing has been in the throws of an ongoing revolution mediated by digital computing, data processing, imaging, archiving, review, translating, internetworking, searching, new economic and distribution models.  What will the next few years hold and strategically require of us?

Youth for Mountains

https://www.facebook.com/groups/173156243975867

The roofs of the world, our water towers, our guardians, the mountains are under threat by climate change. This group was created to foster innovation and conversation between young people concerned about mountains. We youth are the leaders of tomorrow and the bright ideas of today. Use this group to spark change and help save the mountains!

Hey Youth for Mountains! Since many of us are stuck inside due to COVID-19, I thought we should use it as an opportunity to think of ways to #ConnectForMountains!

How can technology and virtual brainstorming help us  care for mountains? What technology have you found most useful in your work in sustainable mountain development? For those of you who have been in the field the longest, how has technology such as social media that brings people together changed your work? Has it made it easier or harder?

I can’t wait to see what you have to say!
