Safeguarding Idaho’s Economy in a Changing Climate will bring together Idaho business and community leaders to share practical and innovative ways to meet the challenges of our changing climate. Bigger wildfires and smaller snow pack affects the crops we grow, the timber we harvest, the air we breathe and the water we need for drinking, irrigation, manufacturing, and recreation. Working together, we can reduce risks and increase opportunities, with the private sector leading and catalyzing the conversation.

Design Thinking is a well-proven method of problem solving that uses creativity in identifying insights and possible solutions and rationality in analyzing and planning various solutions. For the workshops, we are pulling exercises from the Human Centered Design (HCD) Toolkit, which integrates deep social listening into an additive idea building design process, which includes rapid prototyping, community feedback and iteration. This process results in highly successful solutions, which may include messaging, tools, campaigns and products. To learn more about the HCD toolkit or to download it, click here.
