Sustainable Idaho
Tuesday Mornings at 7:35am and Thursdays Afternoons at 4:20 PM

Sustainable Idaho explores Idaho's sustainability topics by considering three key pillars of sustainability: economic, societal, and environmental aspects. Sustainable Idaho explores topics that matter to Idahoans.

Sustainable Idaho is a partnership between ISU's Sustainability Club and the Portneuf Resource Council. New student hosts are hired for Sustainable Idaho at the beginning of each new school year. Organization, planning, and technical assistance for the program is by a steering committee consisting of scientists, experts in their field and ISU faculty.

You can find out more about the Portneuf Resource Council at www.PortneufResourceCouncil.org. Contact us with your comments and ideas, or for hosting opportunities at PortneufResource@gmail.com. We look forward to hearing from you.
