Our cities influence the way we move, behave and feel.

The life-shaping power of urban design isn’t always obvious. But design has huge consequences for people, the economy and the planet. The good news: the happy city, the green city and the low-carbon city are the same place, and everyone can help build it.

At Happy City, we help build happiness into neighborhoods and cities through research, public events and collaborative consulting. Our work is grounded in evidence from psychology, neuroscience, public health, and behavioral economics. Our inspiration comes from urban innovations around the world.

Our mission: to enable everyone to design more health and happiness into their city.
