Program to discuss healthy communities

Award-winning filmmaker and top-rated international speaker Peter McGugan will discuss how to create healthier communities Aug. 29 and 20 at the Tahoe Tallac site.

The discussion is based on using best practices from around the world to help communities take care of themselves. McGugan’s film “How Happy Happens” was filmed on four continents and features community-building ideas that can strengthen relationships, businesses and the organizations. McGugan tells stories of how innovative people create demand for products and services that make a difference within their communities.

Surveys have indicated that many people do not believe big business and government will take care of the quality of life for each community and the Thriving Community Program, sponsored by the Emily Andrews Foundations, offers more local-based solutions, a press release stated.

The talk will begin each day at 7 p.m. at the Boathouse Theatre. Tickets cost $10 per person. For more information, visit or
