Attendees of the three Tahoe Rising Events will discuss challenges facing Lake Tahoe in this current pandemic – from economic, community and environmental perspectives. Keynote speakers will share their wisdom from around the country. Panel sessions with those experts combined with local Tahoe leaders enhance these conversations. Collaborative and interactive group sessions will follow and provide an opportunity to share solutions that we can implement locally to improve our region.
Lake Tahoe may be made up of many communities, but we are one lake and one regional economy, so what affects some of us, affects all of us. Tahoe Rising’s objective is to catalyze change and take action for the benefit of our regional community and economy.
Tahoe Production House created wrap up videos for each of the sessions.  Take a look at the finished video below.
