SHIFT Festival

The 2019 SHIFT Festival, which will take place October 16-18, 2019 in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, will develop the business case for nature as medicine. The event will explore how natural allies in outdoor recreation, conservation, land management and public health can advance the economic and practical applications of nature as a social determinant of health. SHIFT is where natural allies gather to create strategies for a better future.

Amos Clifford, Founder of ANFT, will receive his SHIFT Award and guide a forest therapy walk for participants.

Who should attend
About the Venue:

Snow King Resort

Snow King boasts a location unlike any other Jackson Hole resort. Conveniently located 12 miles from Jackson Hole Mountain Resort - ranked number one ski resort for 2019 by Forbes Magazine, blocks from the town of Jackson's famous antler arches, just a few minutes from Jackson Hole airport & Grand Teton National Park and just steps away from Snow King Mountain.

Schedule

For the past five years, SHIFT has worked to address an existential challenge. In the midst of the sixth mass extinction, at a time when the largest mass migration in human history is driving us indoors, behind screens, our societal disconnect from nature is occurring at the exact moment our need to fight for it has become imperative.

How do we reconnect with nature when our move away from it is accelerating?

In 2018, SHIFT focused on the connection between time spent outside and public health. For the first time, proponents of outdoor recreation, conservation and land management—SHIFT’s traditional stakeholder communities—gathered with members of the health care, funding and research communities to explore public health as an ecosystem service.
