The American Alpine Club hosted a summit of land managers, climbers, planners and scientists representing the world’s mountainous regions. The conference focus was to shape and share environmentally sustainable solutions in mountain areas along with developing global partnerships. Sustainable Summits builds on the successful July 2010 AAC-hosted conference "Exit Strategies: Managing Human Waste in the Wild."
Presented by an alliance of mountain recreation and conservation organizations, the conference is open to all interested individuals from around the world. To foster connection and collaboration, the conference will have a capacity of 150 attendees
