For Building Lasting Quality of Place

Welcome to the Sun Valley Institute for Resilience Blog: For Building Lasting Quality of Place. SVI builds economic, ecological and social resilience by pioneering transformative solutions, driving awareness, and convening leaders and innovators for local and global impact.

Sun Valley leaders founded the Institute in the spring of 2015 to protect and enhance local quality of place for future generations of residents and visitors alike, and to serve as a resource for communities everywhere. More information on our founding and work can be found here.

Much of this content can also be found printed in Wood River Weekly. Thank you for joining us.
