Charles Montgomery creates conversations about people, cities, science, history, myth and human well-being.

Charles is an award-winning author. He also creates experimental public programs where people use their own cities as laboratories. Sometimes he gives presentations to inspire big groups of people to change the world around them.

His new book, Happy City, looks at how lessons from psychology, neuroscience and design activism can help all of us fix broken cities and improve our lives. (Read the rave review in the New York Times.)
