Charles Montgomery creates transformative conversations about cities, science and human well-being.

Charles is an award-winning author. He helps planners, city builders and regular people find new ways to see and change the world around them. He and his team also create participatory programs where people use their own cities as laboratories.

His latest 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 review in the New York Times.)
