Colorado is an epicenter of outdoor culture. Running, hiking, biking, camping, skiing, fishing. You’ve got it all. But there are already concerns here — and around the world — about overtourism, overuse and equitable access to outdoor opportunities in what has traditionally been a very white space. And, whether it's melting snow or extreme heats, climate change is set to further shift how we recreate. From athlete and diversity voices, to the impacts of the climate crisis, this panel will explore how we, as journalists, can best cover such an evolving industry.
