Help Us Build a Thriving PNW Future  
Join the Future of Infrastructure Innovation

WHISTLE STOP TOUR

VIRTUAL MONTHLY CONVERSATIONS WITH INNOVATORS ACROSS THE PNW - BEGINS SEPTEMBER 29th

 

Quality infrastructure matters to every community, in every part of the PNW.

 

Community infrastructure is the lifeblood of our local economies and shapes much of our daily lives – providing us with clean water and air, effective transportation and communication, heat and power for home, work and industry, and more.

 

We spend billions of dollars every year to operate, maintain, rebuild and expand these essential systems.  Pivoting to sustainable infrastructure is one of the most effective, pragmatic and impactful ways we can take on some of societies’ toughest issues while creating a thriving future for all.

CSI is intent on helping the PNW show what's possible: Our goal is to raise $500,000 by the end of the year, to help the Pacific Northwest lead the world in embracing sustainable infrastructure for healthier, stronger and more economically resilient communities. Join the Whistle Stop Tour conversation and consider supporting our donor campaign.  

Whistle Stop Tour 

Every Month September - December  

As the PNW navigates the challenges to safely reopen our communities, the CSI Whistlestop Tour of the Future of Infrastructure Innovation will visit (virtually on Zoom) towns where we’re seeing some of the most exciting projects take root. 

At each Whistlestop Station, you’ll meet some of the terrific PNW innovators who’ve been working with the CSI Innovation Lab, and we’ll introduce you to thought leaders discussing the biggest questions impacting infrastructure policy and investment during this time of unprecedented change.
