Global Summit 2024

Powering The Next 30 Years

October 7 - 9 2024

Leave No Trace Global Summit: October 7-9 2024, Boulder, Colorado

Thirty years of providing critical education and training for people about responsible outdoor recreation around the world has led to this moment: the first Leave No Trace Global Summit, an international gathering of leaders, researchers, advocates, members, and engaged Leave No Tracers with the goal of exchanging ideas, sharing sustainability work and training efforts, advancing the science and so much more. Leave No Trace is proud to host this event for present and future educators and supporters worldwide. 

Come be a part of the event dedicated to protecting the places where we recreate. The Summit will provide the opportunity to learn from experts and researchers, grow your network, and discover what’s possible. We are excited to offer this opportunity to gather together and explore how we can all become the solution to conservation challenges.

In person space is limited so be sure to get your tickets today! Early bird price discounts are in effect through July 31, 2024.
