The Happy City Experiment with Q Ideas

"The Happy Cities Experiment" – Omar Dominguez from Regent College on Vimeo.

Omar Dominguez, Happy City’s Director of Operations and Sustainability, shared our ideas on the Happy City experiment in an engaging talk at Regent College. This talk was part of the first-ever Q Commons event in Vancouver, and was held on September 24, 2015.

Q Commons, an event organized by Q Ideas based in New York City, convenes local leaders to think, learn, and work together on common topics and issues in our cities. The conversation in Vancouver was centred around issues of home through a variety of different lenses: housing affordability, building community, and infusing more happiness into a city sometimes described as fostering loneliness.
