As part of our efforts to showcase the most impactful, innovative, replicable work in the country, we’ll be featuring our 2017 SHIFT Award Official Selections throughout the three days of the 2017 SHIFT Festival.
In addition to inclusion on panels and as keynote presenters, the work of Official Selections will be highlighted with posterboards that showcase their work at Snow King, the venue for SHIFT’s daytime programming.
As well, six lunchtime and two happy hour discussions will feature the work of Official Selections in all Award categories. The discussions are designed to facilitate networking, a discussion of common challenges and a showcase of the ways SHIFT Award category representatives are addressing them with their work.
The lunchtime and happy hour discussions are open to all, and the public as well as SHIFT attendees are invited to participate. Food and beverages will be available for purchase.
On Wednesday, Nov. 1, from 12-1:30 p.m., the first such program will occur when the Public Land Management Innovation lunchtime discussion is held at Pizzeria Caldera in downtown Jackson, WY. The Coalition for Outdoor Access, Colorado Parks and Wildlife, Heart of the Continent Partnership and Mammoth Lake Trails and Public Access Foundation will all be featured.
Thursday’s lunchtime discussions include the following:
For all Thursday lunches, participants are asked to leave ample time to return to the Snow King Hotel in time for the 2 p.m. SHIFT Summit afternoon panels.
On Friday, two more lunches round out the slate.
Two happy hours will round out the ancillary programming for the 2017 Festival.
Both the lunchtime discussions and the happy hours are part of SHIFT’s efforts to highlight work that’s making a difference in the outdoor recreation, conservation and next-gen engagement space.
