Safeguarding Idaho’s Economy in a Changing Climate


The Challenge

Warm Springs Consulting was hired in April 2017 to coordinate Safeguarding Idaho’s Economy in a Changing Climate, a first of its kind, two-day summit to explore market-based solutions for businesses and communities to mitigate or adapt to changes in natural resources, economics, and culture.

The Solution

WSC used Human Centered Design to support the client in clarifying the target audience for the summit. The vision was for businesses to lead conversations and build upon innovative ideas to understand economic risk to Idahoans and explore economic opportunities and efficiencies. WSC managed all aspects of the event including agenda, speakers, marketing, fundraising, logistics, and stakeholder engagement.

To ensure the summit was uniquely positioned to advance the conversation around a changing climate in Idaho, WSC developed Human Centered Design workshops and trained statewide facilitators to work with speakers and summit participants to create market-based solutions that can really work in Idaho.
