Santa Monica City Asks Residents: Are You Happy?

Hosted by

Santa Monica has sandy beaches on a sparkling ocean and lots of people with lots of money. But the real estate blog Movoto makes it number 2 on its list of America’s 10 most stressed-out suburbs. Last year, the City asked for a Bloomberg Philanthropies Mayors Challenge Grant to measure how people really like living there.

With that video, Santa Monica beat out 300 other US cities for a grant of a million dollars to create what’s called a “Wellbeing Project.”
