Mountain Towns 2030 is proud to announce the return of the MT2030 Climate Solutions Summit, the annual gathering of key stakeholders from mountain and outdoor communities working together to implement bold ideas to meet the zero-carbon commitment. Taking place in Breckenridge, Colorado on September 20-22, this year’s Summit will bring together local government elected officials, staff and sustainability teams, ski resorts, business and community leaders, and nonprofits for three days of keynotes, conversations and hands-on workshops with some of our nation’s foremost climate, community and business voices. The Summit will be held at Breckenridge’s Riverwalk Center and at various small group locations throughout the Breckenridge Downtown Arts District.
The unique format of the Summit will facilitate conversation, collaboration and action. Following the first day of passionate keynotes and climate conversations, the second day of the Summit is devoted to collaborative workshops with experts and peers to provide tools and tangible solutions to tackle some of the toughest climate challenges facing our mountain communities.
Attendees will leave the Summit with a renewed perspective of what real climate leadership is, as well as a network of colleagues and the tools that will accelerate their climate action planning.
The Summit will feature a number of prominent speakers including keynotes from Dr. Michael Mann, Distinguished Professor of Atmospheric Science at Penn State University and Pete McBride, National Geographic Photographer and Filmmaker. Featured speakers also include: Sam Adams, the former Mayor of Portland, Sara Axelrod, Director of Sustainability at the Ball Corporation, Rob Thomas, co-founder of Climate Candidates, as well as many others.
