Northern Colorado will host the first-ever Net Zero Cities symposium this week. The event will focus on sharing resources and ideas to develop net-zero energy, carbon and waste communities.

The conference has roots in the Green Summit, which the Northern Colorado Business Report presented for the past several years. Now, publisher Jeff Nuttall says the event is evolving into something even bigger:

“Ft. Collins is really taking the international stage this month to promote innovation in energy, renewables and cutting-edge green technologies.”

Nuttall says business leaders, academic professionals and city officials from around the world, including India, Denmark and Japan will be in Fort Collins for the two-day Net Zero Cities conference  that kicks off Tuesday, Oct. 16.

As host of KUNC's Colorado Edition, I work closely with our producers and reporters to bring context and diverse perspectives to the important issues of the day. And because life is best when it's a balance of work and play, I love finding stories that highlight culture, music, the outdoors, and anything that makes Colorado such a great place to live.
