Charles Montgomery will be presenting a keynote address to the participants of the Grand Connection Visioning Charrette as well as the broader community in Bellevue, WA. The charrette presents the opportunity to envision the future of the Grand Connection. Charles’s talk will inspire participants to also imagine what a healthy and happy community might look like, drawing lessons from public health, neuroscience, behavioural economics and environmental psychology. Armed with strong evidence, city builders have the opportunity to design, build and manage urban environments in ways that improve the health, productivity, life years, economic activity, and happiness of urban dwellers.
