We know from environmental psychology and neuroscience that the physical & invisible urbanscape, structures, and systems of a society have drastic impacts on our wellbeing, experiences, development, and productivity. Conscious NYC is think tank local to New York, comprised of experts and community residents across numerous sectors and fields such as science, governance and policy, arts and culture, education, technology and AI, and design. We aim to pair local experts with local residents and community based organizations to find human-centric design solutions. Through design, we aim to maximize user potential and create a more conscious, equitable, and just New York City.
