Making things happen when bureaucrats say no

@ VOL 29 ON OCT 24, 2016

Entrepreneur and cycle advocate Rob Henderson saw post-quake Christchurch as a perfect place to make things happen. Despite the local authorities saying no, he managed to get corporae a public engaement and sponsorship to launch New Zealand's first public bike share scheme, and is now working on transitioning this into the public transport system. 6 months on how to ignore the bureaucrats and get sh*t done!
