The Greater Houston Partnership is launching a new branding campaign called Houston: The City with No Limits.

The campaign is geared towards attracting Millennials to move to Houston. It’s not the city’s first effort to create a better image for itself. The Greater Houston Convention and Visitors Bureau has had two campaigns, both of which were geared towards potential visitors.

On this edition of Houston Matters, we discuss Houston’s image problem, the new branding campaign and how the city is working to change its perception in the outside world.

Then we discuss the challenges of getting around Houston by bus. And we visit a local program that teaches kids how to eat healthier by teaching them how to cook.

Houston Matters gets underway today at noon on 88.7FM or listen online. Join the discussion at 713-440-8870 or talk@houstonmatters.org.
