What is the single biggest challenge or opportunity North Carolina should work on to shape our state’s long-term economic prosperity? We are really excited that IEI is seeking ideas from the public to help determine what the next big issue is North Carolina needs to tackle. The winning idea will be the headliner for an upcoming Emerging Issues Forum. The #NCBigIdea Challenge kicks off a 5-week open submission process. Big ideas can be submitted via Twitter using #NCBigIdea, or the online submission form available at NCBigIdea.org. The deadline for submission is July 31, 2017 at 11:59 p.m.

The Urban Institute, in collaboration with Policies for Action (P4A), a signature research program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, is hosting a forum to share P4A’s latest findings on early education’s lasting impacts on health and well-being and learn from policymakers designing and implementing programs at the city and state levels.
