Today, the White House is marking “Back to the Future Day” with a series of conversations with innovators across the country.

 

As part of the Day, the White House requests your participation by asking you to take a visionary leap into the future by asking:

“You Tell Us: What Does 2045 Look Like?”

No roads required?

The White House site says “Get excited, and remember: Where we’re going, we don’t need roads,” but adds: “Just kidding. We definitely do. And by the way, Congress should fund them.”

Back to the Future Day centers on the date to which Marty McFly in the hit movie traveled into the “future” in Back to the Future Part II.

“We’ve come a long way in the 30 years that have passed since the original Back to the Future came out. Now, we’re going to talk about where we’re going in the next 30,” notes Lindsay Holst, Director of Digital Content for the Office of Digital Strategy in the White House.
