2016 Mountain Festival
The Canadian Mountain Network’s 2016 Mountain Festival
December 9 – 15, 2016 at the University of Alberta
The Canadian Mountain Network seeks to provide mountain enthusiasts and stakeholders the opportunity to connect, collaborate, and share learnings about Canadian mountains. Learn more at canadianmountainnetwork.ca.
The Mountain Festival coincides with the United Nations’ International Mountain Day (IMD) observed every year on December 11 to celebrate the world’s mountain landscapes and the communities and cultures that inhabit them. IMD is an opportunity for the international community to collectively highlight the importance of sustaining mountain ecosystems and communities for future generations.
The Canadian Mountain Network will join mountain communities in Canada and around the world in celebrating the rich cultures and unique environments found in mountain landscapes by hosting the first annual Canadian Mountain Network Mountain Festival. In 2016, events like the Mountain Symposium and Northern Indigenous Narratives presentation set the stage for interdisciplinary collaborative thinking and networking. Don’t miss the Mountain Mixer at the conclusion of our week of fantastic Mountain Festival events; it’s a chance to relax and meet other mountain enthusiasts!
