Happy Cities

In course of yesterday's workshop on Future Cities, Dy Director IIT Kgp spoke of a new centre on Happiness that has been opened recently in IIT. He promised me to send me more details. I searched the web and found this link .

How can cities be happy? By ensuring that citizens need less time to commute, by having less traffic jam, by having zones of recreation and entertainment, by having a sense of safety and security, by having centres of yoga/ meditation/ sports and by having a feel-good look in the public spaces. But to consciously and scientifically proceed further, we may collaborate with the IIT's Centre of Excellence on Happiness and so I have already sent a message to Director IIT.
