Alongside the Sun Valley Institute, WSU sought to build upon the seeds planted at Safeguarding Idaho’s Economy in a Changing Climate, a two day summit in November 2017 that explored market-based solutions to climate change. The goal of the series was to change the zeitgeist in Idaho toward energy independence and resilience.
Our team conducted outreach throughout the state, honing in on Boise, Idaho Falls, and surrounding communities. The speaker series filled our venues in both Boise and Idaho Falls. Bringing together business, NGO and government leaders, over 100 individuals participated, representing a diverse mix of industries in the private sector, such as healthcare and grocery as well as the public sector, including, state legislators, cities and counties, academics and educators.
