Anne-Marie Slaughter '76, CEO of New America, will host "Innovating the Future" on Arizona PBS to explore public policy and how ideas can be used to create a better world.
The program, produced in partnership with Arizona State University (ASU), will feature weekly expert interviews regarding improving the quality of democracy in America. Guests will include New York Times columnist David Brooks, journalist and author James Fallows, retired four-star Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal, and more.
"America is in fact renewing itself — creating new spaces out of old buildings in downtowns across the country, retrofitting and reinventing factories, farms, families, transportation, schools..." Slaughter told ASU.
"It may be hard to see the outlines of a renewed America through the poisonous clouds of our national politics, but we will show them to you. We won't sugarcoat our problems. On the contrary, we'll confront them head on. But we will also be looking for the ideas that will allow us to solve those problems and the optimism and patriotism necessary to move us forward."
"Innovating the Future" will premiere on Friday, Feb. 8
