The Burning Man European Leadership Summit (ELS) draws 200 participants from across the European Burner community, Burning Man Project staff, and adjacent regions including Israel and South Africa.
The goal for the ELS is to foster co-learning amongst cultural leaders from across Burning Man’s European Network. Participants will share their experiences, hard-won expertise, inspirations and challenges with one another. It also aims to share Burning Man’s ethos and cultural values with our local host community each year.
