The current challenges the U.S. faces make up an extremely long list — from aging infrastructure to affordable housing to equality in education to racial injustice. And many believe there need to be innovative approaches in how to understand them — let alone deal with them effectively.

The Ten Across project has decided to use the Interstate 10 corridor, stretching from California to Florida, as its framework when it comes to water, energy, commerce, and land use — among other things.

Wellington “Duke” Reiter is senior advisor to ASU President Michael Crow and is executive director of the University City Exchange.

The Show spoke with him about Ten Across and how it got started.
