[Panel Event] Balancing Growth and Sustainability in Idaho

March 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm MDT


Event Navigation

Population growth and changing climate are two drivers putting pressure on Idaho communities, infrastructure, and the ecosystems they depend on. What can communities do to limit change and adapt to changing conditions?  Can they thrive sustainably? In this panel, we will hear different perspectives to better understand what Idahoans are doing to meet these challenges and where more work, capacity and expertise may be needed.
