Abstract

For a Local Government in Canada course, students are required to write three separate papers contrasting the ideals and analysis of Charles Montgomery’s Happy City: Transforming Our Lives Through Urban Design (author recently showcased on CBC National News) with their lived experience and observations on the City of Kamloops. The papers contrast Kamloops with the happy city ideals, examine the potential to adopt alternative design models, and compare the ‘happy city’ project with planning initiatives by the City of Kamloops. Panelists will present their assessments of Kamloops as a “happy city” with proposals for the best alternatives in advancing towards this ideal. The moderator for the panel will quickly and briefly lay out the happy city ideals of Montgomery – and panel presentations by students will focus on their individual assessments and preferred alternatives for making the City of Kamloops a happy city.
