Sun Valley Institute for Resilience
The Sun Valley Institute for Resilience is a center for public education, policy leadership and investment to ensure economic prosperity, environmental protection and human wellbeing in its home community of Idaho’s Wood River Valley and in vulnerable communities everywhere. Leaders in the Wood River Valley founded the Sun Valley Institute for Resilience in the Spring of 2015 in world famous Sun Valley to strengthen the area’s ability to bounce back from harm to the local economy, whether from wildfires, poor snowfall, or global economic conditions. The Institute is doing so by mobilizing investments to build more robust energy, food, transportation and water systems and diversify the economy in collaboration with and support of local governments, businesses, citizens and non-profits. The Institute provides thought leadership through research, data and tools development and dissemination with its academic partners, and hosts marquee events to further research, knowledge and deployment of community resilience.
