Jonathan Daly


Jonathan Daly is an urbanist and behaviour change consultant with a focus on the human, social and cultural capital of cities.

He has a strong interest in the sensory experience of urban environments – the visual, the sound, the smell, the texture, and the taste of urban spaces. His work questions how this experience influences our behaviour, our perceptions and our use of public spaces, and whether we feel invited to engage with the urban realm on foot or bicycle or in enclosed spaces such as cars.

Jonathan’s research focuses on the mindset of changing cities as they undertake the process towards becoming sustainable, liveable and healthy places. He works with urban managers and problem solvers to develop behavioural adaptation strategies and interventions to build capacity for the social and physical change of cities.
