This week on Smart city we’re heading outside to explore the greenways and bike lanes of cities.
Greg Moore is the executive director of the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy. He’ll tell how us the former military outpost became one of the largest greenways in the U.S., and how he brought together a group of cross-sector leaders for an event called “Turning The Tide” which focused on bold actions being taken on behalf of the environment.
And we’ll speak with author, journalist and avid cyclist Jeff Mapes about his book,Pedaling Revolution: How Cyclists Are Changing American Cities”. Jeff will share the political side of riding a bike and offer ideas on how cities can encourage two-wheeled transit.
Smart City is a syndicated, weekly hour-long public radio talk show that takes an in-depth look at urban life: the people, places, ideas and trends that affect us all. Host Carol Coletta, president and CEO of CEOs for Cities, talks with national and international public policy experts, economists, business leaders, artists, developers, planners and others on the pulse of city life for a penetrating discussion on urban issues.
Smart City is broadcast at 6 a.m. Saturday and Sundays on WKNO-FM, but it is also webcast and podcast so you can listen to it anytime you like. For the webcast, times for the broadcast in other cities and to sign up for the podcast, visit our website.
