Since 2007, InStove has participated with Aprovecho Research Center in their annual “Stove Camp” which brings partners from around the world to Cottage Grove, Oregon to learn about stove standards and testing in the place where the movement was born. Stove Summit engages stakeholders of all levels in the clean cooking sector. From foundations and donors, to students and volunteers, NGO partners, and sponsors, this event allows everyone—regardless of prior knowledge—to learn about the state of the art in cookstoves from the leading experts in the field.

This year's Stove Summit will feature and include workshops and sessions for academic, professional, and philanthropic audiences, including:

1. Effective philanthropy in stove projects

2. Appropriate stoves for all projects: Construction with local materials

3. Due diligence: evaluating partner capacity for sustainable production

4. Monitoring and Evaluating impact

There will be sessions on alternative fuels and stove designs, business models, and volunteer opportunities. It is a conference where everyone can learn, share, participate, and leave inspired about the role of clean cookstoves in making the world safer, cleaner, and more prosperous for all.

If you or your organization would like to propose an in-kind sponsorship, or request a partnership opportunity that is not on the current list, please contact Adam Creighton at
