We are happy to announce that Happy City was awarded the Canadian Institute of Planners 2020 Healthy Communities Planning Award for Planning Excellence for our Pavement-to-Plaza Wellbeing Assessment!

Happy City is an urban planning and design consultancy. We use the science of wellbeing to create healthier, happier and more inclusive communities.

Our interdisciplinary team helps governments, city builders and city dwellers around the world design for wellbeing.

The happy city, the thriving city and the sustainable city are the very same place. Let’s build it together!
