City in Focus’ mantra is to care for the soul of the city through conversation, connection and compassion. At this event we will explore ways in which our urban landscape shapes and defines our spirit and relationships with one another. Vancouver has a reputation for being a lonely and a sometimes isolating city. Charles Montgomery will address these issues through the lens of urban design, architecture and behavioral economics. Our hope is that attendees will be challenged and inspired to reflect on ways in which they can create community and connectedness in their own lives.
Charles Montgomery creates transformative conversations about cities, science and human well-being. Charles is an award-winning author. He helps planners, city builders and regular people find new ways to see and change the world around them. He and his team also create participatory programs where people use their own cities as laboratories. His latest book, Happy City, looks at how lessons from psychology, neuroscience and design activism can help all of us fix broken cities and improve our lives.
