The Urban Development Institute (UDI) is proud to present TEDx featured international speaker, Charles Montgomery as our February keynote.
Featuring our “February Exclusive”, UDI welcomes everyone interested in our growing city, to join us for this event and hear from this acclaimed and local thought-leader. Everyone can register for the event at the UDI Membership Price.
What if our cities themselves had the power to make or break our happiness? Charles Montgomery explains how cities influence how we feel, behave, and treat other people in ways most of us never realize. Everything from the length of your commute to the depth of your front yard can have an unseen effect on your mind, emotions, and social life.
By understanding the effect that design has on our emotions and decisions, we can all share this empowering new vision of city life.
Referencing global and local examples, join us as Charles shares his insights and research findings:
• How city design can build more social connections and create more happiness
• Explore where Metro Vancouver goes wrong and how we can fix it
• The psychology of bad urban planning decisions and how to overcome this
