Mountains of Our Future Earth
4-8 October 2015
The Mountain Research Initiative was co-organizing the Mountains of Our Future Earth conference. This conference occurs only once every 5 years and is the biggest meeting of its kind in mountain research. The outcomes of the conference play a big role in driving research and policy agendas at many levels. If you work in mountain research, don't miss it!
This year, the Mountain Research Initiative was sponsoring a Photography Competition and Exhibition in conjunction with the conference. Both amateur and professional photographers were encouraged to take part- there will be separate prize categories to ensure fairness and broad participation. The competition focused on various themes within the concept of "global change in mountains". For more information, visit the competition website.
