Many of the systems that Americans utilize every day were designed as long as a century ago. Municipal boundaries, the electrical grid, transportation systems, voting methods, and various other manmade systems have served us well for a time, but not without some degree of obsolescence and manipulation. From education to government, innovative leaders are building new networks that link and reconfigure outmoded systems of thought and organizational structures that accommodate progressive thinking to move our cities forward. Rewiring Your City will focus on projects that prove there are more efficient ways to live, work, and make a difference.
