In a word, better cities!







Happiness is in the city!

We carried out a survey with IPSOS institute among over 3,500 urban-dewellers in 6 cities (Chicago, Rio, Paris, Algiers, Mumbai, Chongqing). Key learnings: nearly 90% of them are happy in their city and 3 out of 5 are optimistic for the future!
