About Iowa Ideas

Iowa Ideas is a nonpartisan, statewide learning experience designed to explore the key questions and big ideas that will shape the future of Iowa.

Created by The Gazette in 2017, Iowa Ideas is an effort to connect Iowans via events and storytelling, discovering solutions to pressing issues facing the state and fostering collaboration.

The project comes at a time where political polarization and mistrust is running very high, yet the need to collaborate and uniquely position our state to thrive in a global economy has never been more important.

We hope to help move the conversation forward in a few different ways:

  • The Iowa Ideas magazine, published five times per year, featuring in-depth, solutions-focused stories, gorgeous photos and informative graphics to help delve deeper than the average newspaper article.
  • The Iowa Ideas conference, which will return to Cedar Rapids October 3-4. Now in our third year, the conference brings together Iowans from all walks of life, working together to make our state better. We'll explore key topics via moderated panel discussions and open up the floor to audience questions and interaction.

Iowa Ideas will cover several topic areas in 2019. Each represents an industry or issue that has the opportunity to shape the future of Iowa:

  • Agriculture
  • Diversity & Inclusion
  • Education
  • Energy & Environment
  • Health Care
  • Human & Social Services
  • Infrastructure
  • Policy
  • Regional Development
  • Young Professional
  • Workforce

Iowa Ideas is for anyone who wants to make a difference in the future of Iowa. We hope you’ll join us and be part of the conversation.
