The Iowa Environmental Council is set to hold its two-hour Bright Ideas 2021 event Thursday to discuss sources of clean energy in Iowa.

The event runs from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Des Moines but has satellite, group-viewing options in Iowa City and Waterloo. Attendees also have the option to watch a livestream that doesn’t allow participation.

Destenie Nock, an assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, is the featured speaker.

The in-person locations include a brunch. The cost to attend ranges from $25 for online viewing to $65 for the Des Moines location. Students and young professionals get discounts.
