In June 2024, U2030 hosted the sold-out U2030 Future-Think-a-Thon at the Oracle Innovation Lab in Deerfield, IL, with 40 participants exploring the Futures Thinking methodology developed by the Institute for the Future. The event featured transformational leaders, including the Mayor of Deerfield, IL, Daniel Shapiro, Assistant Manager of the Village of Deerfield, Andrew Lichterman, along with industry leaders Ahmad Ababneh (PG&E), Ajit Apte (BGE), Shawn Adderly (PG&E), and Fred Gomos (NiSource).

Attendees toured the Oracle Innovation Center, engaged in a workshop segment, experimented with creativity through a cha-cha lesson, drafted 10-year-out solutions, and wrapped up with a comradery-building awards ceremony for the winning team.
