Our world is changing. A "perfect storm” of historic and converging forces is now impacting people here in Tulsa, throughout our country and everywhere. CSC has analyed these forces and sounded the alarm, so that we and others can plan and act based on an understanding of the meaning and implications of these dramatic changes.
The Council provides information and analysis on key trends and needs. We help public officials better understand changing needs, opportunities and challenges. We provide consultation, technical assistance and staff support for many local and state planning initiatives; and we assist non-profit, public, and for profit entities to plan more effectively based on an understanding of new realities.
"CSC is here to promote deeper, smarter, more-informed thinking. We understand that addressing complex challenges requires both a new framework of thought and a long-term commitment. We want to empower people to work together, to take the necessary risks, and to do what is necessary to shape a better future for our community today and for the generations to come." - Phil Dessauer
