IGMAN d.d. Konjic, 09.12.2022. - The increasing attention to the importance of mountains led the UN to declare 2002 the UN International Year of Mountains. The first international day was celebrated for the first time the following year, 2003.

Mountains are home to 15% of the world´s population and host about half of the world's biodiversity hotspots. They provide freshwater for everyday life to half of humanity. Over two billion people worldwide depend on food produced in mountainous regions and many more benefit from the minerals, timber, and renewable energy that are derived from mountain resources.

Unfortunately, mountains are under threat from climate change and overexploitation.

Celebrating International Mountain Day is not just about mountains. It is the dedication and gratitude we display for our mountains, which have such a huge impact on everyone’s lives.

The theme of this year's International Mountain Day (IMD) on 11 December 2022 will bewomen move mountains”.

International Mountain Day 2022 is an opportunity to promote gender equality and therefore contribute to improving social justice, livelihoods, and resilience. 

Among other things, the UN announcement states that "as farmers, market sellers, businesswomen, artisans, entrepreneurs, and community leaders, mountain women and girls, in particular in rural areas, have the potential to be major agents of change. When rural women have access to resources, services, and opportunities, they become a driving force against hunger, malnutrition, and rural poverty and are active in the development of mountain economies.”

Konjic is a town located in the central part of Bosnia and Herzegovina surrounded by mountains. Prenj, the most attractive but also the cruelest mountain in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Zec, known for its abundance of blueberries, Olympic beauty BjelašnicaVisočica, the natural border between Bosnia and Herzegovina…

Igman d.d. Konjic, as an important contributing factor to economic development in Bosnia and Herzegovina, also provides significant funds for humanitarian purposes and sponsorship of cultural and sports events, and support specific NGO projects aimed at environment protection, including projects of mountaineering associations, scout organizations, mountain rescue services etc.
