The COVID-19 crisis has changed how we live, work, and learn in many ways, in turn adding new stresses and placing new demands on the country's infrastructure. This year's United for Infrastructure event (formerly known as Infrastructure Week) taking place September 14-21, is bringing together government officials, community organizers, business leaders, and other stakeholders to discuss these issues and create solutions to keep America's infrastructure going strong for future generations.
The annual event is hosted by United for Infrastructure, a nonprofit that advocates and educates policymakers and the public about the value of infrastructure. The week convenes a variety of experts to discuss the essential role of roads, water systems, airports, broadband, and other infrastructure in citizens' daily lives, the economy, public health, and national security.
This year's theme is #RebuildBetter, and sessions will examine how the nation's infrastructure intersects with the many issues affecting society today, Zach Schafer, executive director and CEO of United for Infrastructure, told Business Insider.
