Happy City St. John’s is a non-profit organization that informs, encourages, and facilitates public dialogue around civic issues in the city of St. John’s.
Our vision is to become a trusted and valued venue for citizens, advocacy groups, business associations, labour organizations, and municipal staff to come together. We firmly believe that an informed city is a successful city – and a happy city.
At Happy City, we’re always looking for new ways to reach out to the people of St. John’s. Most of our engagement work happens in two ways:
- Online: Through our website, our Facebook presence, and our Twitter account, Happy City posts articles and ideas, looks for comments, and provides a space for citizens to work collaboratively to shape emerging ideas about the shape of St. John’s.
- In Person: Happy City organizes forums that bring citizens together to discuss civic issues. We use a talented facilitator to run these sessions as “open spaces,” with the agenda set by the participants.
