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 eighth 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.
360° of Sustainability is about celebrating and continuing to build a robust, thriving community we can all be even prouder to live in. Sustainability is not just “green” and not just environmental but a vibrant community that supports itself without compromising the future. Sustainability is about people (a robust workforce and strong community), innovation (sparking and nurturing new and forward looking creative ideas and actions) values (families, faith, personal commitments), and the use and renewal of natural resources. A sustainable community cannot focus on any one of these areas, or even a group of them alone; it must focus on all of them, how they interact and effect each other, for the good of all. It is with this in mind that Green Chips asks the attendees of Convene for Green 2016 to broaden their thinking, break down social norms, break down silos, break down their own ideas of “green” and “sustainability” and instead think about how we all, as Southern Nevadans, can work together, through the impact of our collective efforts, to build the community of the future. To facilitate these conversations, we will have panels that celebrate our strengths and identify our largest social opportunities with panels covering: education, food insecurity, and homelessness.
