Omaha gains national attention for "green" ideas

Two prominent national conferences are being hosted in Omaha, including the Energy Innovation Summit and the Meeting of the Minds, in June 2011.

Omaha Mayor Jim Suttle will participate in several events at each conference, along with the City of Omaha's Sustainability Coordinator, Kristi Wamstad-Evans. Both events are invitation only, drawing a national attendance, and even international attendance for the Meeting of the Minds.

The Energy Innovation Summit, hosted by the Kauffman Foundation, is the first follow-up meeting to the White House Conference on Energy Innovation that was held in Washington D.C. in May. The Summit will take place on June 16th.

The Meeting of the Minds, presented and hosted by the Urban Age and Joslyn Institute for Sustainable Communities, is a leadership summit for building sustainable cities. The meeting brings together more than 200 leaders from 15 countries with local and regional public, private and independent sustainability stakeholders. The meeting runs June 16th, 17th and 18th.
