THE SUN VALLEY FORUM
Resilience takes foresight, strength, adaptability, and innovation; we get ahead of risk and simultaneously build opportunity. Globally, leaders are working to build a more prosperous, equitable and secure world, with agreement to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris climate change accord. At the same time, rapid environmental change and the highly dependent nature of the global economy have made resilience imperative for government leaders, businesses, and communities.
Starting in 2015, the Sun Valley Institute for Resilience hosted the Sun Valley Forum to convene innovators to share successes and challenges. The Forum has helped build and spread approaches with speed and scale by connecting people and ideas. With support of the Forum community, leaders everywhere are accelerating the transformation to a prosperous, equitable, thriving future.
Speakers have focused on critical leverage points including shifting capital to invest for impact, corporate strategy, community wellbeing, public engagement, and communication, as well as sector-specific sessions on food, energy, water, natural system restoration and health.
“There may be no greater concern for investors than climate risk, yet very few have begun taking the next step – consideration about resilience. The Sun Valley Institute is pioneering this discussion like no other. Having attended the conference I highly recommend it to any forward-thinking impact investor. Plus, is a lot of fun!”
