The Millennial Trains Project // Journey I

December 3, 2013

In August, Senior Analyst Matthew Stepp took part in the Millennial Trains Project, a cross-country train tour of seven cities in ten days. The trip brought together 24 millennial age (18-34) thinkers to facilitate their own unique, entrepreneurial projects via 1950’s era trains. Matthew’s project, Energy Innovation Across America, aimed to bring the stories and perspectives of energy innovators from across the country back to Washington. With energy policy gridlock at an all-time high, he broke out of the D.C. bubble and interacted with those that are hard at work developing next-generation energy technologies. In this short documentary, Matthew’s perspective on the trip and his project are highlighted among other participants.
