Can We Build Happier Cities by Charles Montgomery
Static Preview

The most powerful ingredient of happiness is strong positive social connections and it is so when it comes to making citizens and cities happier. Charles Montgomery speaks at Sam Sullivan's February 2014 Public Salon in Vancouver, BC, Canada. 

How can we be happier in cities? Charles Montgomery looks for answers at the intersection of urban design and the new science of happiness. In psychology, neuroscience, and behavio

ral economics, and in cityscapes from Disneyland to Dubai, he explores the link between the ways we design our cities and the ways we think, feel, and act. His work demonstrates how each of us can change our own lives by changing our relationship with the cities we inhabit.

Isabel Sebastian, Business Development Manager at Bhutan Luminous, talks about happiness and well-being as a measure of sustainability progress at BSR Conference 2012: Fast Forward.

She addresses the importance of happiness to development and sustainability; most business models will require significant changes to have a positive effect; and how adapting business models to account for happiness can provide business with unexplored opportunities to help people contribute to society, learn the “skill” of happiness, and transform their lives.

Greater sustainability impacts depend on personal and collective human happiness and well-being.
