11 Feb Building a Sustainable Snowsports Industry – the LISTEX 2020 Forums
Welcome to 2020?
Wildfires in Australia, floods in the UK, and freezing levels above 3000m in many areas of the Alps – 2020 has started with a clear message from Mother Nature that all is not as it should be…
Whilst all industries face a threat from climate change, the threat posed to the snowsports industry is both more dramatic and more immediate than for almost any other. With governments seemingly unwilling or unable to make the real changes required, and quickly, the responsibility must fall to us as an industry to do all we can to halt this crisis and save our sport.
All LISTEX events in 2020 will examine what actions the industry can take. We’ll take a look at what snowsports companies are doing right now to build a more sustainable future and combat climate change. Expert speakers will reveal the true science behind climate change and the specific impact on the mountain environment. Practical advice on what can be done at personal, local, corporate and government level will be shared from organisations including POW, Ski Flight Free, Snowcarbon, One Tree at a Time and many others. Add your voice to the debate, and share best practice whilst we still have time to save our sport.
