The mountain community and climate change

On Wednesday, November 11, 2015, the Grenoble mountain community held a conference to explore ways of ensuring that the mountains were taken into account in the COP21 negotiations. Researchers, mountaineers, refuge guardians and business leaders spoke about the impact of global warming on mountains around the world.

A copy of “The Mountain Green Book" was given to all attendees. This book contains contributions from 23 international mountain protection organizations, including the Petzl Foundation.

It has three main objectives:
- to give an overview of the effects of climate change on the mountain environment
- to monitor how climate change has altered the way people live in the mountains
- to encourage the mountain community and the COP21 attendees to work together on the future of our mountains

“The Mountain Green Book” concludes with a 21-point action plan designed to change behaviors and adapt to climate change. It is free to download in English and in French here.
