"Imagining A New Florida" Media Kit

Welcome, media.

This site provides you with information and images you can use for stories about “Imagining a New Florida,” the statewide public-television documentary produced by FHC and WPBT2-TV Miami.

“Imagining a New Florida,” a one-hour program, looks at how our car-dependent lifestyle amid sprawl development is causing social isolation, as well as taking a toll on the environment and the pocketbook. It explores how Floridians might chart a new path towards sustainable growth and a better quality of life.

Here's a clip of the documentary. More information and photos are below.
