Our Founding Fathers believed in the importance and the power of ideas to change people's lives. Our nation's history has been a great adventure in ideas. The GameChanger Ideas Festival was created to continue this proud tradition and provide people opportunities to engage with and debate life-changing-ideas, because democracy demands wisdom and vision in its citizens.
The GameChanger Ideas Festival is for people who never want to stop learning and growing. People who value being part of a community of lifelong learners who thrive on seeing issues from multiple perspectives and believe in making thoughtful and informed decisions on critical issues. If you value curiosity and exploring topics you've never even thought about before, this event is for you. Police officers, school teachers, stay-at-home parents, engineers, mayors, business leaders--we are all students of life.
We invite people to our stage who challenge the status quo and strive to make changes to critical systems that honor our shared humanity. We believe that civil disagreement and debate are stepping stones for learning. The GameChanger Ideas Festival does not take political stances on issues. Instead we strive to offer a variety of viewpoints from people with both scholarly insight and hands-on knowledge. These aren't just people with good ideas, but people who have put their ideas to action in the real world.
