Happy City workshop with the Centre for Civic Governance

Helping municipal leaders build happiness into British Columbia communities.

HC_ColumbiaInst - 77


How can municipal leaders build happier communities? In March, 2015, elected officials from cities around the Province of British Columbia took up the challenge at the Centre for Civic Governance High Ground conference. With help from the Happy Cities team, they explored how to use emerging evidence from public health, psychology and other fields to design more wellbeing into communities.

They then focused their attention on a case study: Lower Lynn, a neighborhood in transition in the District of North Vancouver. Please see report for a summary of key insights and recommendations.
