Mountains provide essential fresh water to billions of people worldwide, are home to wildlife, flora and fauna and offer a place for mountain lovers to be inspired, to play and to adventure. The organisation empowers mountain tourists and the mountain industry to adopt the Respect the Mountains 7 Ways. By following these simple yet effective actions, all sectors of the mountain tourism industry are encouraged to reduce their impact, whilst building a sustainable future.
Respect the Mountains is looking for volunteers from all over Europe to promote Mountain Awareness! You could help us with local promotion and fundraising, being hands-on at our Envirotrek Events Series, or represent Respect the Mountains at Trade fairs or other events. Contact us if you are passionate about preserving mountain areas and promoting sustainable mountain tourism, and we can find out what suits you best.
