Connections: Reshaping Rochester - "Creating Healthy and Vibrant Cities for All"

"What if everything we did in our cities had to be great for an eight year old and an 80 year old?" That's a question urbanist Gil Penalosa regularly asks. He's the founder and chair of 8 80 Cities, an non-profit organization in Canada with a mission of creating safe and happy cities for all ages.

Penalosa advises city leaders around the word. He's in Rochester as a guest of the Reshaping Rochester series at the Community Design Center Rochester. We talk about what Rochester can learn from communities across the globe. In studio:
