A World of Movement in 2010
2010 was the founding year of Sustainable Tahoe, and in just this year you’ve helped move projects under what seems to be impossible deadlines.
What’s the buzz?
2010 Stewardship Congress - On September 18th we came together as one region pushing for a sustainable community, sustainable environment, sustainable economy… a Sustainable Tahoe. 90 leaders met to connect and create a conservation foundation of possibilities for the Lake Tahoe region, building upon what each of us has done separately over a number of years. We committed to activities for the 2011 TahoeExpo, and got amped to take it to the streets.
Green Networking - Taking your feedback from the Stewardship Congress, we put this event together to get everyone under one roof for a time to connect and further unite the corporate world with conservation. We engaged in touring the Embassy Suites sustainability initiatives in energy efficiency, and learned how Explore Tahoe has turned its space into an educational hub for Tahoe Stewardship.
Mobility - Scientific analysis of Tahoe’s ecosystem shows the devastating effect that vehicles have on the health of our air, forest, wildlife, and lake water. We realize that clean mobility is an action that must be pushed to the forefront of our initiatives for 2011. We’ve been working with local experts and leaders to place more attention and resources into adopting the greenest, while most viable technologies available.
GeoCenters - Education is key to a shift in behavior. Multiple regional organizations have advocated on behalf of education centers that promote the sustainability of the Tahoe watershed. We have committed ourselves to working with these teams to expand the vision of a strong system of GeoCenters, each specializing on the most pertinent issues facing or natural assets.
2011 TahoeExpo - Starting this September, we’ll have a new outlet for showcasing possibilities for a sustainable Lake Tahoe. The vehicle will be through the TahoeExpo, a place to see, discuss, and test the viability of whatever could make our environment, economy and community healthier. Details are on the way…
Our Commitment to 2011
Going forward into our second year, Sustainable Tahoe is committed to helping as a liaison between our region’s corporate and non-profit worlds. We realize that it takes both sides of the coin to create lasting impact, and with holistic sustainability as our “true north,” we will put action to every priority.
At the time of this post, ST has made every bit of our progress with 100% volunteer support, and are funded 100% by our members. We commit to continue this dedication into the future as we broker relationships and see each of these projects unfold. Our passion is for our environment, and our commitment is to act with her best interests in mind.
We welcome your partnership in 2011.
