Psychology and the City


Charles Landry and Comedia have long been pioneers of new thinking about cities. With Chris Murray (Core Cities), Landry now outlines why urban psychology is important. They are joined by Michael Sanders (Behavioural Insights Team) who talks about how the behavioural sciences can help create better policy in places for the future. Everyone across the city stands to gain from civic design that takes account of the things we know about judgement, decision-making and the importance of context. Chaired by Rhiannon Corcoran, Professor of Psychology, University of Liverpool.
