A number of folks approached us during the recent Texas Tribune Festival and asked, “What is Texas 2036 all about?”
It’s exactly the question we were hoping to hear. We explained that Texas 2036 is a nonprofit organization building statewide support for sustained, data-driven planning efforts. We are focused on the challenges and opportunities our state faces as it prepares for its bicentennial in 17 years — and the 10 million more people who will call Texas home by then.
In short, we want to help sensible folks think long-term about the critical issues Texas will face in coming years, and the options for solving them in ways that will extend Texas’ prosperity into the future. People need to buy into a bigger vision; we want to help them create it.
