The Jackson Hole Center for Global Affairs empowers leaders and communities to understand and address global forces of change in business, society, and the environment.

Founded in 2002, the Jackson Hole Center for Global Affairs (JHCGA) is a premier bipartisan think and do tank in the Rocky Mountain region.


JHCGA mobilizes ideas and action outside of government to impact the policy process.  When government to government dialogues stall, JHCGA can play a role in driving towards results.  

Jackson Hole's natural beauty can inspire global constituencies to find shared solutions to global problems.  For example, JHCGA has a proven track record of bringing global stakeholders to Jackson and forging collaboration to reduce carbon emissions from the globe's coal-producing regions.  Coal production drives climate change.  Climate change threatens global life and Jackson Hole's nature environment.
