EcoTuesday Celebrates Two Years of Bringing Leaders Together

SAN FRANCISCO– EcoTuesday, a structured monthly networking event for sustainable business leaders, is celebrating its two-year anniversary this month. The event currently takes place in seven cities across the country on exactly the same evening each month, bringing together thought-leaders and decision-makers from the many areas of sustainability.

Nikki Pava and Oren Jaffe launched EcoTuesday in San Francisco in January 2007 as a sustainable business-networking forum that enabled people to connect with a shared context. EcoTuesday events include a presentation from a sustainability expert, followed by a short Q & A, concluding with an introduction circle where attendees have the opportunity to share their name, company, and a sentence about their personal passion around sustainability.

"We are thrilled to see the growing interest in sustainable business every month," said Pava, president, EcoTuesday. "We look forward to launching EcoTuesday in more cities across the country – and throughout the world."

The first event in San Francisco brought together approximately 60 participants. A few months later Minneapolis was launched, inspiring the creation of the EcoTuesday Ambassador Program, which provides support for those who produce EcoTuesday events in other cities. Sustainable business leaders now come together on the fourth Tuesday of each month in Los Angeles, Marin, Seattle, Washington DC, Silicon Valley and Detroit, with many more cities to come.

EcoTuesday is a forum for sustainable business leaders to come together to network, collaborate, and engage in a structured environment. EcoTuesday events include an interactive dialogue and feature visionary speakers from the sustainable business world. During the introduction circle, participants share one sentence about their business and a passion or interest around sustainability, which facilitates focused networking efforts for the rest of the evening.
