In November 2004, news was flashed around the globe that a delegation of environmentalists would present a petition (Climate Justice Programme 2004) to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to place the Sagarmatha National Park (SNP) World Heritage Site on UNESCO's List of World Heritage in Danger, citing melting snow and glacier ice as the primary threat.

Several members of Mountain Forum also participated in this spontaneous discussion.
