Next 10 is an independent, nonpartisan organization that educates, engages and empowers Californians to improve the state’s future. Next 10 is focused on innovation and the intersection between the economy, the environment, and quality of life issues for all Californians. We provide critical data to help inform the state’s efforts to grow the economy and reduce global warming.
Since 2005, Next 10 has been able to provide Californians with the online California Budget Challenge that has been educating residents on the tough trade-offs involved in balancing the state budget.
