he City of Boise has a Cultural Master Plan. What is that? Why does it matter?

Discussing traffic congestion, and what can be done about it, with representatives of the Ada County Highway District (ACHD), the Idaho Department of Transportation (ITD) and the Community Planning Association of Southwest Idaho (COMPASS)

In November a diverse coalition of industry leaders, environmental groups and universities hosted the Idaho Climate Summit: Safeguarding Idaho’s Economy in a Changing Climate. While conversations about climate change in Idaho have been happening within various sectors and constituencies for quite some time, the summit was the first successful attempt to bring together a wide array of business, academic, public and environmental representatives with a focus on economic opportunities in addition to the very real impacts to our environment and way of life.

I had the chance to talk with a few of the speakers from the conference about their perspectives on why climate change is an important reality to make business decisions around and what opportunities exist for innovation that will help grow the Gem State’s economic vibrancy due to the climate reality.

We hope you enjoy this conversation with Julia Kertz Grant from Micron Technology, David Eichberg from HP Inc, Kate Gordon from the Risky Business Project and the Paulson Institute, and Aimee Christensen from the Sun Valley Institute for Resilience.
