Climate Leadership Summit at Telluride Mountainfilm

Last May, POW proudly hosted the inaugural Outdoor Industry Climate Leadership Summit alongside our partners, the Outdoor Industry Association. Leaders from across the outdoor industry gathered at the Mountainfilm festival in Telluride, Colorado, to discuss the challenges related to climate change and to help define tangible business actions to combat this threat to our industry.

Join us on Friday, May 25, 2018, at Telluride Mountainfilm, as we partner with OIA once again to host the second Climate Leadership Summit. This years event is specifically catered to CEOs; we’ll focus on specific how-to sessions for CEOs to dive deeper into climate messaging, policy, and corporate responsibility, with tangible opportunities to take action on both.

We hope you’ll join us.
