The 2024 MT2030 Climate Solutions Summit

The Mountain Towns 2030 Climate Solutions Summit is the annual gathering of leaders and stakeholders from mountain, resort and rural communities working together to achieve zero carbon emissions by 2030.

Since launching in 2019, the Summit has evolved into the preeminent networking and knowledge-building event for key stakeholders committed to accelerating climate action in mountain, resort and rural communities throughout the US.

The 2024 Summit will be hosted in Jackson, WY with the Jackson Hole Center For The Arts serving as the hub of the event.

The two-day Summit features inspirational keynotes and conversations with some of our nation’s foremost climate leaders and 30 peer-led breakout sessions addressing the emissions-reducing solutions and community-wide climate planning and collaboration strategies most valuable to mountain, resort and rural communities of every size.
