Safeguarding Idaho’s Economy in a Changing Climate

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 statewide summit to explore market-based solutions for businesses and communities to mitigate or adapt to changes in natural resources, economics, and culture.

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

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

Using Human Centered Design for Finding Solutions and Adaptations to Idaho’s Changing Climate

Warm Springs Consulting is leading the utilization of Human Centered Design as a facilitation tool in the Summit workshops. We see this as an important step in identifying market-based solutions for Idahoans.
