You all are welcomed to join us for the 2014 Sustainable Summits Conference set for July 20-24 in Golden, Colorado, at The American Mountaineering Center. The focus of this important international conference is to shape and share environmentally sustainable solutions in mountain areas, along with developing global partnerships. We had planned this conference for 2013 in Alaska but severe travel restrictions for federal employees put this on hold.  Sustainable Summits Conference is an expansion of the 2010 Exit Strategies Conference with a greater focus on planning for best sustainable practices in a variety of areas including human waste. Our three main days cover these areas: 

Day 1- Sustainable Practices and Solutions: Education and field- tested practice for land managers and users.
Day 2- Planning and Access: Can you get it right from the get- go?
Day 3- Reducing User Impact: The challenge of managing all types of waste.

The third day will include the most practical remote human waste systems including composting, vermicomposting, pit toilets, solar drying and pack out.  A few of our presenters on human waste practices include: Dawa Steven Sherpa, recent practices on waste recovery in the Himalaya, Geoff Hill from Canada who is an expert in compost and vermicomposting and John Leffel with the National Park Service's Public Health Field Program.  

For more information go to the American Alpine Club's website:

It would be great to see many of you again!

Roger,

Great to hear from you! I am just on my way to the Reinvent the Toilet Fair in New Delhi and will be there for the rest of March. We're presenting our new design. I would like to come to the Conference in July--I will look at my schedule and set some time aside.

OK, take care and talk later!

Dear Gonzalo,

It is really good to hear from you!  Maybe we can help a little with your airfare again.  Your attendance in 2010 was very informational, we'll all keep learning with the 2014 conference!

Let us know if we can help.

Kind regards,
Roger

Hi Roger, hi everyone in the group!

Nice to know things keep on rolling and the Conference will take part again on July.

There´s no need to say that the topic is more than interesting. Opening the discussion to all kind of sustainable practices for sure increase the number of interested parties. And the topics to discuss are unlimited!! Gorgeous!

Since last conference I had chance my working position, but still completely related to conservation issues in my Country´s National Park´s Administration.

Though the website says that it´ll be hosting people that “represents world mountainous regions”, the conference program explore issues that exceed mountain areas, as education and planning. I left my mountains years ago and I´m working in a sea shore protected area… and I´m sure there are hundreds of point in common, despites there are different environments. Definitely I´m more that interested in shearing experiences and learning from some other buddy’s.

I´ll pass the voice to some colleges, surely interested. And certainly I´ll include the Conference in my “things to do” list.

Congratulations to the people involved in the organization… specially you Roger!

Take care everyone, hope se you soon.

Germán

Roger

 

Thank you for the early advice about Sustainable Summits.

 

I attended Exit Strategies in 2010 with Tom Hopkins (we gave a paper on human waste management in New Zealand) and enjoyed it immensely. I came home much stimulated by the whole experience.

 

I’ve just registered for Sustainable Summits along with fellow New Zealander Dave Bamford. We are both New Zealand Alpine Club member, and I’m the current president.

 

We look forward to a great conference!

 

John Cocks

 

PS Is there someone I can contact with queries about the conference or should I use the tab on the registration form?

Looking forward to seeing all the like minded people again.

Best Regards ,

Hi Greg,
 
That would be terrific to have you attend!  Please use the code: "vendor" and that should let you in to register.
 
We are finalizing our printed material today and can include you in as a vendor, if you can register today.
 
It'll be good to see you again!
 
Roger
