Igman d.d. Konjic – part of the global #MountainsMatter campaign

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 make up one quarter of the world’s landscape and they are the source of most of its fresh water. 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. Mountains also harbour a rich variety of plants and animals.

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 will be sustainable mountain tourism.

Mountain tourism attracts around 15 to 20 percent of global tourism. Tourism, however, is one of the sectors most affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, affecting economies, livelihoods, public services and opportunities on all continents. In mountains, the restrictions of the pandemic have further compounded the vulnerabilities of mountain communities.

Konjic is a town and center of same named municipality on north Herzegovina, at the central part of Bosnia and Herzegovina surrounded by mountains. Prenj, the most attractive but also the most cruel mountain in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Zec, known for its abundance of blueberries, Olympic beauty Bjelašnica, Visočica, the natural border between Bosnia and Herzegovina… Most of the outdoor activities begin from this region: hiking, camping, rafting, kayaking, village tourism, canoeing, mountain biking and even paragliding.

Igman d.d. Konjic, as an important contributing factor to economic development in Bosnia and Herzegovina, also provide 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.

We are celebrating this International Day 2021 by hashtag #MountainsMatter, and joining global campaign by sharing the picture of mountain Prenj.

Let’s continue to keep taking care of our mountains!

Međunarodni dan planina proglasila je 2003. godine opća skupština Ujedinjenih naroda, nakon što je Međunarodna godina planina, koju je UN proglasio 2002. godine, ukazala na potrebu kontinuiranog osvješćivanja o ulozi i značaju planina na život stanovništva.

Planine zauzimaju oko jedne četvrtine ukupne površine zemlje i najveća su izvorišta pitke vode. Više od dvije milijarde ljudi širom svijeta ovisi o hrani proizvedenoj u planinskim regijama a mnoga druga dobra poput minerala, drveta, energije, crpe se iz planinskih resursa.

Obilježavanje Međunarodnog dana planina ne odnosi se samo na planine. Riječ je posvećenost i zahvalnost koju pokazujemo prema prirodnom bogatstvu koje ima ogroman uticaj na ljudske živote.

Održivi planinski turizam, tema je ovogodišnjeg Međunarodnog dana planina koji se obilježava 11. decembra, s ciljem da se ukaže na turizam kao sektor koji je najviše pogođen pandemijom COVID-19. Pored ekonomskih posljedica, posebna pozornost skreće se na ograničenja koja su pojačala ranjivost planinskih zajednica.

Konjic je grad i centar istoimene općine na krajnjem sjeveru Hercegovine, u središnjem dijelu Bosne i Hercegovine, okružen planinama. Prenj, najatraktivnija ali i najsurovija planina u Bosni i Hercegovini, Zec, poznata po obilju borovnica, Bjelašnica, olimpijska ljepotica, Visočica, prirodna granica između Bosne i Hercegovine... Rafting, planinarenje, kampovanje, seoski turizam, vožnja kanuom, brdski biciklizam, pa čak i paraglajding, samo su neke aktivnosti iz bogate turističke ponude Konjica.

Igman d.d. Konjic, kao kompanija koja u velikoj mjeri doprinosi ekonomskom razvoju Bosne i Hercegovine, značajna sredstva izdvaja u hmanitarne svrhe i sponzorstvo kulturnih i sportskih događaja, te podržava projekte nevladinih organizacija usmjerenih na zaštitu životne sredine, uključujući projekte planinarskih društava, izviđača, gorskih službi spašavanja i sl.

Ovaj Međunarodni dan 2021. obilježavamo hashtagom #MountainsMatter, te se pridružujemo globalnoj kampanji dijeljenjem fotografije planine Prenj.

Nastavimo da brinemo o našim planinama!
