Synopsis

Tahoe Project is an independent, non-profit journalism venture that supports solution-oriented learning, critical-thinking and productive dialogue about local, regional and global issues relevant to Lake Tahoe. The Tahoe Project seeks to engage minds in productive dialogue and collaborative problem solving and to empower parties to negotiate toward actionable outcomes by promoting critical thinking and knowledge-based discussion. We are driven by the conviction that answers to Tahoes most challenging problems exist in the ideas and energy of the worldwide community of people who care about this unique place. In the tradition of journalism in the public service Tahoe Project aims to underscore and stimulate positive change in a non-partisan, non-ideological framework. We are committed to high standards of journalistic impartiality, accuracy, fairness and transparency. Tahoe Project does not lobby, nor ally with politicians or advocacy groups. We examine issues over time as they unfold. We host dialogue about the environment, governance, the economy and community. We translate scientific information for practical consumption.
