Abstract: How will trends in climate change, alternative energy, high-tech construction, autonomous vehicles, smart cities, and public funding affect communities, infrastructure, and the practice of civil engineering in the short and long terms?

These are the questions that ASCE is helping members answer with its new multifaceted project, Future World Vision: Infrastructure Reimaged.
