Future City 2057 Video — Text Version

Below is the text version for the Future City 2057 video.

Visualize a future city 40 years from now. What do you see?

As the National Renewable Energy Laboratory celebrates 40 years of advancing energy innovation, leaders from cities across the country gathered at the lab and talked about how cities could transform over the next 40 years as they transition to clean energy while an artist took notes by sketching their ideas. 

(The artist shetches ideas that include locally managed energy, a tool library/repair shop, a pedestrian-friendly city,  exciting new careers like visualization solutions and urban futures engineer, and a city that lives in balance with the natural environment.)

What’s your vision for the next 40 years? Join the conversation. #futurecity
