Big Ideas Gets a Bit Bigger


We’ve got a special place for people aspiring to make the world better: it’s called Big Ideas. This category, which debuted last year, celebrates innovation and the visionaries driving it. Their quests are as diverse as beating cancer, solving poverty, protecting nature, and inspiring the next generation to further today’s achievements. The category also sports an eponymous magazine, updated daily, that highlights a broad range of news that just might be game-changing for humanity.

Today, Big Ideas is excited to welcome a new crop of organizations working hard to make a difference. They’ve all created new Flipboard magazines around some key issues of our day: sustainability, access to healthcare and education, women’s issues, and more. You can browse these new additions by tapping on the covers below, or head over to the Big Ideas category in the Content Guide (it’s listed under Books) to explore a range of organizations, causes and magazines.
