The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) is the producing partner for Cities of the Future. The film was inspired by ASCE’s Future World Vision project which takes the viewer 50 years into the future. With 150,000 members in 177 countries, ASCE members engineer the built environment while protecting and restoring the natural environment. Many volunteers from ASCE are experienced in community outreach and may be a good resource for materials or demonstrations for Cities of the Future activities.

Founded in 1994 as the philanthropic arm of the American Society of Civil Engineers, the ASCE Foundation supports programs that enable ASCE to influence the future of the civil engineering profession. During the last twenty-five years, they have provided more than $24 million in funding for programs that enhance the quality of life, promote the profession, advance technical practices and prepare civil engineers for tomorrow.

For Cities of the Future, the ASCE Foundation is also raising funds for the “Send a Kid to the Future” campaign that provides funding for free screenings to students from underserved communities.

At AECOM, we believe infrastructure creates opportunity for everyone.  We are proud to be a Cities of the Future sponsor and one of the sponsors of “Send a Kid to the Future” program, providing grants for free screenings to students from underserved communities.

The National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing professional licensure for engineers and surveyors. NCEES develops, administers, and scores the examinations used for engineering and surveying licensure in the United States.


DiscoverE is a key partner on Cities of the Future. The film features five students as they progress through the rounds of DiscoverE’s signature program, the annual Future City Competition.  DiscoverE also coordinates Engineers Week, and through their outreach programs they reach 100+ engineering organizations and companies. They are a hub for volunteers who want to work in their communities.
