LAKE TAHOE — Sustainable Tahoe, a nonprofit organization, helping to cultivate the Tahoe area as a leader in geotourism and sustainable lake stewardship, has announced the first basin-wide green networking event in South Lake Tahoe.
On Nov. 18, regional leaders, owners, staff and advocates of green technology, conservation, alternative transportation, clean energy and sustainable innovation will gather to network and start the next wave of action toward sustainability.
Taking place at the Embassy Suites in South Lake Tahoe, the event will focus on bringing these community leaders together to meet, collaborate and share resources under one vision of creating a sustainable destination of the Lake Tahoe basin.
“The future of Tahoe’s environment and economy depends on us,” said John Hara, advisory board member of Sustainable Tahoe. “It’s our time to unite around a vision of a sustainable Tahoe and corroboratively take action beyond what’s already been done. We owe it to future generations to unite and commit to preserve this incredible resource.”
The event will include a tour of recent sustainability initiatives by the Embassy Suites, which has recently become a model for sustainability in lodging. The tour will also look at the new Explore Tahoe facility, a watershed-welcoming center focused on promoting Tahoe’s natural assets.
A 2011 Tahoe Expo is being planned for the upcoming summer season, showcasing possibilities for a new Tahoe economy. This networking event helps set the stage for uniting the necessary groups that will realize this expo and continue action in sustainability far into the future.
