Get Involved – Businesses, Schools, Non-Profits and Others are Welcome to Participate
Have you heard about the Partners for a Sustainable Nevada or the PSN? This is a relatively new initiative started by the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection’s (NDEP) Bureau of Sustainable Materials Management and driven by interested stakeholders from around the state.
The Partners for a Sustainable Nevada brings together private industry, non-government organizations (NGOs) and governmental agencies to foster communication and collaboration, promote sustainability programs across the state, and guide stakeholders towards a common vision – to change the way Nevada thinks about sustainability for our future generations by identifying and promoting opportunities to advance and expand sustainability efforts statewide.
The group kicked off in the summer of last year and recently published the first portion of their efforts, the Menu of Options. The efforts are continuing through a series of projects, 16 in total. The projects fall under 3 categories – Policy Change and Funding, Sustainability, and Education and Outreach. The hard work to ensure we can grow and prosper, while our beautiful state is maintained for generation is just starting.
You can join this work. Businesses, non-profits, schools, and individual citizens are welcome and needed to help shape a sustainable future for Nevada. To learn how you or your organization can become involved, go to PSN’s homepage.
BEP has been an active leader in this initiative since the beginning. We would love to have you join us and hear your voices.
