EcoTuesday is a networking event for sustainable business. Every event features a 20 minute keynote by an industry thought–leader, followed by the hallmark “Introduction Circle” where all participants have an opportunity to share about their about passion and find like-minded collaborators. Events take place nationwide on the fourth Tuesday of the month.
In January 2007, longtime friends Nikki Pava and Oren Jaffe were discussing the challenges of networking in today’s business world. The two brainstormed possibilities for an event that would provide a shared context for all participants, so that people could connect with others while learning about sustainability. EcoTuesday was born from this conversation. EcoTuesday is now held on the fourth Tuesday of each month in cities across the US.
Toward the end of 2007, the first EcoTuesday event outside of San Francisco launched in Minneapolis, and the Ambassador Program was created. Since then, Ambassadors have launched EcoTuesday in other cities across the country. Let us know if you'd like to produce an EcoTuesday in YOUR city!
Here are the two main aspects of EcoTuesday:
Featuring opportunities for sustainable business leaders to network and learn about current issues from an innovative speaker and from one another. During the introduction circle, all participants share one sentence about their business and a passion or interest around sustainability.
Producing EcoTuesday events in their city, becoming regional leaders in sustainable business. Ambassadors are empowered with tools and resources to earn income by generating and hosting EcoTuesday events.
