The Squaw Valley Institute (SVI), is a founding co-presenter of Creating Equilibrium


Creating Equilibrium, a first-of-its-kind event focused on generating environmentally impactful innovations, is set to host its inaugural event August 25 – 27, 2017. This three-day event -a radical solutions forum, immersive laboratory, and music festival-features some of the top minds on the planet, and is aimed at crafting and funding real-world solutions to the ecological challenges America now faces.

Visions, Creating Equilibrium’s two-day innovation forum on August 26 and 27, will be hosted by New York Times bestselling author, Pulitzer Prize nominee, and Creating Equilibrium co-founder Steven Kotler; and a host of culture-shaping thought leaders, including:
  Patricia Wright – Conservation Biologist, MacArthur Genius Grant Winner, Climatologist
  Jeremy Jones – Pro snowboarder, founder of Protect Our Winters
  Jamie Wheal – Executive Director, Flow Genome Project
  Dr. David Suzuki- Professor, Author, Broadcaster Host of The Nature of Things
  Dickson Despommier – Professor Emeritus of Microbiology and Public Health at Columbia University
  Khuram Mir – CEO of The Farm2U
  Susi Mai – World-Class Kiteboarder and Business Networking Entrepreneur
  Andrew Hessel – Distinguished research scientist and bio-futurist
  Robert Suarez – Designer, Entrepreneur, Impact Driver and Biomimic at Singularity University

“Our core strategy is deceptively simple,” says Kotler. “We build bridges. Our goal is to bridge gaps between traditionally isolated domains-environmental science, technology, business, government and academia. Utilizing one of the most radical and future-forward eco-innovation approaches ever seen on the live stage, Creating Equilibrium’s mission is critical-accelerate our better tomorrow.”

Proceeds from the event will be invested into environmental innovations through Creating Equilibrium’s incubator, EQ Ventures, dedicated to supporting impact entrepreneurs with radical new approaches to solving critical environmental issues. The incubator will provide startups with mentoring and training, as well as an initial investment and possible follow-on funding.

Lake Tahoe will also serve as the backdrop for the Village Green festival, a free, immersive experience for all that unites storied musical talent, eco-visionaries, culinary culture, and experiential art, including a floating, multimedia installation set on the crystal clear waters of the lake.
Creating Equilibrium’s Saturday evening concert features a performance by the supergroup, Secret Stash. Anchored by Stefan Lessard from Dave Matthews Band and Mike McCready from Pearl Jam, this iconic duo will be joined by a “secret stash” of musical friends, including Fun.’s Nate Ruess, Godsmack’s Sully Erna, saxophone player Michael Ghegan, and many more – all in one of California’s most majestic settings: the base of the KT22 mountain at Squaw Valley.

Joining them on stage is the band Dispatch who just released their celebrated sixth album, “America, Location 12,” the band returns to the road on their first national tour in five years. They will play their only California appearance at Creating Equilibrium. Rounding out the weekend’s list of musicians is R&B singer-songwriter, Allen Stone. The Secret Stash, Dispatch and Allen Stone concert will be open to the public, with general admission and VIP tickets available at http://www.creatingequilibrium.com.

“We are profoundly honored to welcome Creating Equilibrium to Squaw Valley and are excited to see the impact that comes from the incredible ideas and worldly thought leaders participating in the event,” said Andy Wirth, president and CEO of Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows. “A core part of our mission is to act as stewards of these legendary mountains. Not only is Squaw Valley an incredible backdrop for a world-class event, but we also share Creating Equilibrium’s goal of fostering radical new approaches to solving critical environmental issues.”
