JACKSON WILD SUMMIT
2023 Theme: Coexistence - Converging Paths
to a Thriving Planet
“Coexistence” between humans and nature is no longer just an idyllic goal – it is now an imperative. Clearly we have pushed the natural world onto a decidedly unnatural and perilous path. Focused on collective survival, global regeneration solutions need innovative collaborations – deploying revolutionary technological advances alongside traditional knowledge systems. This year’s Jackson Wild Summit will investigate ways that we can transcend competing interests to create a thriving planet. And how we storytellers can/must inspire this essential change.
This year’s Summit will take place in-person, with a selection of sessions live-streamed to our virtual audience.
All Jackson Wild Summit programming will be hosted at the Jackson Lake Lodge, with the exception of the networking event on Wednesday evening and the Awards Gala on Thursday evening which will be in downtown Jackson Hole. The Jackson Lake Lodge is situated in the heart of Grand Teton National park in Wyoming, one hour north of downtown Jackson Hole.
