Minnesota 2050

Minnesota 2050 (MN2050) is a coalition of professional organizations striving to provide Minnesota citizens with infrastructure that will meet the needs of the 21st century. The coalition includes APWA-MN and other infrastructure professional organizations working in the public, private, and educational sectors.

MN2050's three main goals are to:

  • Increase public awareness about the importance of our state’s critical infrastructure.
  • Develop K-12 infrastructure-related curriculum to educate Minnesota’s 2050 leaders and partner with educators, coalitions and foundations to integrate the STEM education fields and infrastructure knowledge.
  • Establish a platform to help professionals research and advance our infrastructure management message.

MN2050 organization was started in December 2009, following a meeting coordinated by the Minnesota chapters of APWA and ASCE. The meeting included representatives from the University of Minnesota, the engineering community, transportation lobbying organizations, the Legislature, and a local elected official. The educators, engineers, and lobbyists generally described infrastructure issues -- including the importance of adequate infrastructure funding. The elected officials stressed the importance of delivering the infrastructure message directly to the public. In mid-2011, the MN2050 organization name was reserved as a non-profit organization.
