Nevada Green Institute vision is of a community with shared values of building an efficient, smart, and vibrant community.
Nevada Green Institute (NGI) recognizes the individual as the key to a sustainable future. The institution fosters the individual’s role in promoting sustainability by focusing on four key areas: community leadership, supporting sustainable programs and policies, entrepreneurial, and consumerism. To encourage the public in their pursuits, NGI offers best practices information, policy research, workshops, and forums for furthering sustainable development related projects. Specifically, we build community interest in sustainability by involving local farmers, businesses, green entrepreneurs, technologists, non-profit organizations, educational institutions, and critical thinkers to share their best practices with the public.
Nevada Green Institute is a non-profit corporation whose mission is to promote public awareness and discussion about innovative ideas, technologies, and practices that support an efficient, smart, and vibrant city. Our strategy to promote such awareness is by fostering knowledge partners to define issues and solutions applicable to the region.
Through this process, we are able to engage the public to increase the demand for efficient technologies, and best practices. Innovative Technologies are transformative, changing the character of products, process, marketplace, and competition. This will cause important shifts in the labor market and the skills needed. As a result, we can attract innovative businesses and build a vibrant economy.
“The future is literally in our hands to mold as we like. But we cannot wait until tomorrow. Tomorrow is now.”
“Movement towards sustainability” is “changing patterns of consumption and production (that is—all the ways we live, work, and play at all levels of human activities- institutions, firms, households, and individuals- in a more ecologically sensitive, economically sound, and socially just manner.”
