What makes Kansas City so relevant when it comes to the movement to create and promote a Culture of Activity is that it is so unremarkable and reflective of the challenges cities across North America and around the world are facing. As you’ll hear from Laura and Michael during this conversation with John, BikeWalkKC is rising to the occasion and view KC as a City of Opportunity.
Yes, they have their work cut out for them. But they are making progress, in education, in policy advancement, and yes, even in infrastructure finally starting to emerge on the ground.
