The Vail Centre for Sustainability

For the believer in a better world.
Find the inspiration. Make the planet a priority. At the Vail Centre for Sustainability, business owners, organizations, and communities convene under one roof to uncover the environmental solutions our future generations demand.


The mountains are our mentors and metaphors.

We aspire to be the global model for the innovative education of our people and our planet. We take a collaborative approach – uniting ecological, economic, and social factors – and put diverse issues on the table. Our goal is simple: positive change.

The Sustainability experience:

  • Experiential learning methods that get you out in the elements
  • Inspiration from industry-leading partners both local and international
  • Sessions, speakers, and programs that integrate the 4Es: ecology, economy, equity, and education
  • Renewed responsibility for the future of our planet

Larissa brings an exceptional understanding of our environment and the impact we can have on it to the Vail Centre.
