Happy Streets Living Lab: Presented by City of Vancouver, MODUS, Urban Realities Laboratory and Happy City Lab is an experiment that will take place during Project for Public Space’s Pro Walk/Pro Bike/Pro Place conference on September 12 – 14, 2016.
The Happy Streets Living Lab will combine research rigor with fun tours of Vancouver, where participants learn about their own physical and emotional responses to the city. It is a valuable opportunity to bring people from around the world together to learn best practices in creating happy spaces that promote social interaction and build trust. The project partners are excited to share this innovative project with conference attendees. ….
Each tour will end with a group discussion of the data collected during the tour and the implications for urban planning, and public health and safety. Preliminary results from all the tours will then be shared with conference participants in a plenary session. …
