Full Event Description

Join 8-80 Cities for an evening presentation by acclaimed author of Happy City, Charles Montgomery.

For years, self-help experts have told us that we need to do inner work in order to improve our lives. But what if our cities themselves had the power to make or break our happiness? Drawing on brain science, psychology, and rich personal stories, Charles Montgomery explains how cities influence how we feel, behave, and treat other people in ways most of us never realize. Everything from the length of your commute to the depth of your front yard can have an unseen effect on your mind, emotions, and social life. But Montgomery uses fascinating and often funny social experiments to demonstrate that we are not helpless. We can change our lives by changing our relationship with our cities—and each other. By understanding the effect that design has on our emotions and decisions, we can all share this empowering new vision of city life.

Come out to CSI Bathurst on Monday, May 26th to hear Charles Montgomery’s inspirational presentation on the Happy City. Enjoy a lively discussion, learn about people in your community that are working to make a healthier and happier city, and enjoy some great food and drinks!

Cost: $5 (includes admission to the event and a selection of yummy treats from CSI Coffee Pub)
