Green Motion awarded the Green World Award 2023
What a win!
Melbourne in Australia has been named the world’s more liveable city for the 7th year in a row.
The capital of the Australian state of Victoria, which is already well known for its stylish cafes, bars and laneways, came out on top of the Economists Intelligence Unit’s 2017 ranking. The EIU examined 5 categories – stability, healthcare, education, culture and environment and infrastructure in 140 destinations.
Melbourne was given an overall rating of 97.5 out of 100, followed closely by Vienna in Austria (97.4) and Vancouver in Canada (97.3). The top 5 was rounded out by two more Canadian cities – Toronto and Calgary.
The 2017 top ten is identical to last year, with Perth in Australia, Auckland in New Zealand, Adelaide in Australia, Helsinki in Finland and Hamburg in Germany all making the cut.
However, there were some changes further down in the ranking. Manchester in the UK dropped 8 places to 51st. London, which was the only other UK city to feature in the list, came in at 53. Although, Reykjavik in Iceland, Amsterdam in the Netherlands and Budapest in Hungary all rose in their rankings.
The least liveable city according to the report was Damascus in Syria.
