John Freemuth Student Congress

John Freemuth


The Andrus Center for Public Policy, Public Lands Foundation, and National Association of Forest Service Retirees are partnering to host the 2024 John Freemuth Student Congress October 7 – 10, 2024, in Las Vegas, NV. The 2024 Student Congress will focus on public lands policy issues associated with the transition to renewable energy. Select college and university students from across the country will examine renewable energy development on public land through field work and policy discussions, culminating in a student-authored report that will be presented to the heads of Federal land management agencies, in Washington, DC. Students will explore issues such as: climate change as the catalyst for change, the drive to decarbonize, and public lands trends in energy production and transmission.
