10 Ideas 2017: Report

By Roosevelt Institute |


At the Roosevelt Institute, we understand the importance and value of young people’s ideas, and we’re actively working with a new generation of leaders committed to fighting for their vision. Our oldest and most competitive policy journal, 10 Ideas, promotes that work by elevating the top student-generated policy proposals from across the country.

The 10 Ideas Journal 2017 edition spans seven issue areas—human rights, foreign policy, education, health care, economics, energy and environment, and democratic access—and every major region of the country. From bringing public accountability to Michigan charter schools to increasing access to capital for minority-owned businesses in Georgia to reducing the number of wrongful convictions in New York, our members are pushing for policy reforms that lift up communities. Most importantly, students are fighting to promote the public good through both government and private-sector institutions.

The Roosevelt Institute brings together thousands of thinkers and doers—from emerging leaders in every state to Nobel laureate economists. We reimagine the rules that guide our social and economic realities. Follow us on Twitter @rooseveltinst and like us on Facebook.
