Happy City contributed to the Dubai 2021 Plan by co-facilitating an urban design workshop, helping develop design criteria and KPIs that are focused towards happiness, sharing evidence on the happiness-design connection, and providing design input for the pilot neighbourhood project.

The result of our consultation will inform the design of a pilot project in Al Barsha, one of Dubai’s residential neighborhoods. The project outlined key objectives for the following 100 days and year, along with key performance indicators to measure success.

The project was led by Houssam Elokda with support from Charles Montgomery and Omar Dominguez.
