Charles Montgomery is an award-winning author, urbanist, and leader of a consultancy building more happiness into cities. He is the author of the book Happy City. He has advised and lectured planners, students, and decision-makers across the U.S., Canada, the UK, Saudi Arabia, and Mexico. He also creates experiments that challenge us to see our cities—and ourselves—in entirely new ways. Montgomery and his team have turned the lessons from Happy City into a tool for helping people bring more happiness into their cities. His writings on urban planning, psychology, culture, and history have appeared in magazines and journals on three continents. He has received several awards.
