Exploring Climate Solutions: Voices from the Mountains

We are excited to share insights from the recent event, "Just and Sustainable Climate Futures: Stories and Solutions from the Mountains." This dynamic gathering, hosted on December 11, 2023, at the JustNorth Pavilion during UNFCCC COP28 in observance of UN International Mountain Day, brought together 18 passionate individuals from various mountain communities worldwide. Led by Katie Kamelamela, Assistant Professor at Arizona State University and Mountain Sentinels Fellow, along with Jacob Stewart, Mountain Sentinels Community Director, the event aimed to explore community-based approaches to climate adaptation, mitigation, and sustainable mountain development.
