GLOBAL INFRASTRUCTURE CHALLENGE 2050
Win an all expenses paid trip to the 12th Global Infrastructure Leadership Forum
Have you experienced an issue rooted in infrastructure and developed an
idea on how to fix it through policy, technology, or financial investment? Sparked by our mission to double the level of global infrastructure investment, the Global Infrastructure Challenge 2050 is a nationwide call-to-action for infrastructure experts, policy stakeholders, and the general public around the country to take an active role in the conceptualization and development of innovative solutions to our greatest infrastructure challenges. With a focus on priority projects and the ways in which these projects can be built faster and more effectively while at the same time optimizing long-term benefits for all communities.
We're putting out a Global call for you, the users of infrastructure, to take part in the first global crowd-sourced infrastructure challenge. We want to hear your ideas in five specific areas surrounding infrastructure. All winners will be announced during the 12th Global Infrastructure Leadership Forum, March 26-28, 2019, and invited to present their ideas to an audience of 750+ global infrastructure executives. The top winner will receive an all expenses paid trip to Montreal, featured speaking role to present their idea to infrastructure leaders, and recognition in the international press.
