The American Alpine Club is hosting a summit of land managers, climbers, planners and scientists representing the world’s mountainous regions. The conference focus is 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.”
In addition to the environmental focus there is a also a day on “the Everest knot”, where Markus will participate as a panelist. The panel´s focus is social and economic issues which have emerged at the forefront of mountain areas. What needs to be changed and does the Everest region provide a working example?
