Infrastructure Blueprints

Working with top visionaries, leaders, and experts, CSI is creating a series of reports focused on rethinking what's needed by 2040 for Northwest infrastructure systems.

Never has it been more important to invest limited infrastructure dollars with long-range foresight. The fundamental premise of the Five Big Goals by 2040 Report Series is that, in a world of rapid change and growing challenges, we can no longer afford to simply replicate old infrastructure investment models. Innovation is required.

The series taps the region’s leading infrastructure thinkers and innovators to broadly reimagine infrastructure systems, synthesizing their insights to provide guidance and inspiration for infrastructure decision-makers. Reports are refined through review by high-level teams of experienced leaders and broadly shared through media and policy engagement campaigns.
