The Sun Valley Institute advances resilience via policy leadership, public engagement and targeted investments for economic prosperity, environmental protection and human well-being in its home community of Idaho’s Wood River Valley and serves as a resource far beyond. Leaders in the Wood River Valley founded the Institute in the Spring of 2015 to proactively preserve our quality of life and strengthen our area’s ability to bounce back from near and long term disruptions to our economy and environment such as from from wildfires, poor snowfall, or global economic conditions. The Institute mobilizes investments and grant money to build more robust energy, food and water systems and diversify landuse and the economy in collaboration with local governments, businesses, citizens and non-profits. The Institute provides resources through research, data and tools development with its academic partners, and hosts marquee events to further research, knowledge and development of community resilience.
