Our Future in Focus is about the interesting dynamic that exists in Southern Nevada between visibility and impact. It is about examining the optics of who we are as a community and what components of our regional genetic makeup are made visible versus the elements we don’t show, don’t see, or chose not to see. It is about showcasing the organizations, projects, and people who are truly making an impact in the sectors of our community with the biggest opportunities for improvement identified in Green Chips’ State of Sustainability report: Healthcare; Education, Arts & Culture; and our social sector.
Green Chips asks the attendees of Convene for Green 2017 to broaden their thinking and open their eyes to examine how we all can work together, through the impact of our collective efforts, to build the community of the future through a strategic focus on today. To facilitate these conversations, we will have panels that celebrate our strengths and identify our largest opportunities with panels covering: energy, healthcare, education, arts & culture, and food insecurity & urban agriculture.
Convene for Green is a high-level regional discussion around developing goals and ideas, as well as promoting the important economic, social, and environmental successes of the Southern Nevada region and identifying key challenges for the coming year that can be tackled head-on via uniquely innovative partnerships and community engagement.
Now in its ninth year, this annual sustainability discussion convenes an impressive roster of prestigious leaders from the public, private, non-profit and academic sectors. Convene for Green strives to provide an inside look into the unique challenges our region faces in the multi-faceted sectors of sustainability while promoting our greatest success to both residents and visitors.
