IEMA Book Club – Happy City by Charles Montgomery
During the past few weeks, we have seen city life change beyond recognition. There is less noise, congestion and pollution, and communities are providing support for those in need. However, a pandemic is too high a price to pay for reduced environmental impacts and improved social cohesion. Is it possible to design a city to make residents happier – pandemic or not?
In Happy City Charles Montgomery shows in that living in densely populated cities can make us healthier, saner and happier. This webinar asks questions like:
- Are large cities good or bad for sustainability?
- How can new technology make cities more sustainable?
- What will the long-term effect of coronavirus be on city life?
