The Mid-America Regional Council (MARC) and Kansas City Public Television (KCPT) created Imagine KC to raise awareness of and present solutions to the economic, social and environmental challenges facing the Kansas City region.
Over the past three years, MARC and KCPT have co-produced and aired 12 episodes of Imagine KC, providing reliable information about issues and ideas to encourage informed decision making and help our communities plan for a vibrant, connected and green future.
On June 27, 2013, we will continue that tradition with a new episode, this time focused on the social and civic engagement of older adults. Using video footage from throughout the region, graphics, expert interviews and viewer feedback, the program will continue helping the region envision its future.
Objectives of Imagine KC
Each episode is designed to:
- Educate the public about a specific set of issues, policy options and how other metro areas are meeting these challenges.
- Envision how to implement change in our region.
- Engage the community in ongoing implementation projects and decision making.
Imagine KC works to increase public knowledge of key strategies for more effective patterns of metropolitan growth.
