Walk Raleigh received such a positive response both locally and abroad that we knew we had to make the project accessible beyond our hometown. We created Walk [Your City], an online pedestrian empowerment tool for any citizen to become an engaged stakeholder in their community and launched it on Kickstarter. The crowd's overwhelming response gave us the confidence to move forward. Once complete, our W[YC] platform will allow anyone to create his or her own guerrilla wayfinding signs, export, print, and install around town. The ultimate goal is to shift perceptions about walkability for the good, establishing healthier and safer communities for all of us. In September 2012, W[YC] was named as one of the seven platforms that will shape our future city.
