“Sustain Baltoro” Cleanup Expeditions showcased as part of The UIAA Mountain Protection Award (MPA) platform
August 14, 2016
Our “Sustain Baltoro Cleanup Expeditions” initiative is currently being showcased by The International Climbing and Mountaineering Federation UIAA Mountain Protection Award (MPA) as part of their platform. The UIAA Mountain Protection Commission “aims to encourage and support the conservation of natural resources, landscapes and diverse cultures in mountain regions” and the platform features innovative initiatives supporting responsible community-based tourism.
We would like to congratulate and thank all the dedicated people who have worked for this project as it is only through collaboration that the toughest climate change questions can be answered.
The award for 2016 is now closed and submissions are currently under review. Although there are many remarkable initiatives nominated from Nepal, Bhutan, Azerbaijan, Montenegro and Mexico amoung others we can still keep our fingers crossed anyway!
