Lots of cities cater to populations that prefer to drive.

But in some urban areas, young professionals are looking for opportunities to walk their cities. The desire to get out of their cars and onto the sidewalks launched an unsanctioned street campaign in Raleigh where participants posted signs pointing others to specific destinations like museums and parks.

Host Frank Stasio talks with Walk [Your City]'s Chief Instigator and founder Matt Tomasulo about his online tool that allows citizens to take offline action in their communities.

Matt's ideas have garnered the attention of other big thinkers. Check out his TED Talk below:
