Transcript

  • 1. This is the Institute for Emerging Issues.
  • 2. The Institute for Emerging Issues was established in2002 to put ideas into action and to ensure the state’sfuture success.
  • 3. We believe NC’s future success is determined in large partby our ability to innovate at the intersection of four keyareas: economy, education, health and the environments.
  • 4. Each year, we scan the landscape, do our research, andask people working in these areas what they think is thebiggest issue facing North Carolina.
  • 5. From that, we look for the drivers of these issues, thechallenges that cut across all these areas. We narrow itdown to one, and that is our new emerging issue.
  • 6. Now we really get to work.
  • 7. We bring people together from across the state around anemerging issue and identify innovative solutions toaddress them.
  • 8. The more people engaged, the more comprehensiveand enduring the solutions.
  • 9. Change is inevitable. That’s the easy part. IEI and its partners work to ensure progress in North Carolina.
