The MT2030 Climate Solutions Summit

Vail, Colorado October 18-19, 2023

The Mountain Towns 2030 Climate Solutions Summit is the annual gathering of key stakeholders from our mountain and outdoor communities: local government elected officials, staff and sustainability teams, ski resorts, business, and nonprofit leaders, all committed to achieving zero-carbon emissions in their communities.

Taking place at The Hythe Vail, the Summit will bring our communities together in a truly collaborative environment, to ensure that every community can deploy the most challenging climate solutions, quicker and accelerate a collective movement to zero carbon emissions.

The unique format of the Summit features inspirational keynotes and conversations with some of our nation’s foremost climate, business and community leaders, and over 25 hands-on workshops addressing the emissions-reducing solutions that will help us meet our ambitious climate goals. Every attendee will leave the Summit with a network of colleagues, and the tools to accelerate climate action planning in their communities.

We hope you can join us.
