When planning out one’s life, everybody would opt for a nice neighborhood that provides safety and comfort for their families and loved ones. However, this ideal place is not just a construct of the government. Locals are also leaving their mark on the quality of life their neighborhood provides. The annual report from The Economist on global liveability is here. This year, Melbourne holds the top place as the most liveable city in the world.
Melbourne Earned the Title of Most Liveable City Thanks to a Rich Agenda of Cultural Events
Melbourne earned the title of the most enjoyable city on this Earth. It is the capital and also the most crowded city in Australia. The local community made a name for itself for small bar exposure yet lots of cultural influences that energize its gardens, parks, and creative organizations. The annual Economist Intelligence Unit’s Global Liveability Index endorses the quality of life this city provides to its locals.
However, it’s not only the cultural background that Melbourne offers that makes it such the most liveable city. Each year, the capital city prepares an extensive list of world renowned events. Not only that, but they span a multitude of domains such as sports, culture, industry, entertainment, and lifestyle.
For instance, this spring alone will witness a collection of interesting old and new festivals that add up more charm to the local atmosphere. On August 26, The House of Dior: Seventy Years of Haute Couture will start educating and entertaining the crowds in the arts of fashion. One of the most popular shows is Pop Up Globe that displays the works of William Shakespeare.
The Annual Economist Report Ranked 140 Cities According to a Multitude of Factors
On the other extremity stand several cities that don’t host the necessary conditions for an enjoyable life. These are Lagos, Nigeria, Tripoli, Libya, and Damascus in Syria that witnessed the horrors of war.
The report takes into consideration various factors to measure the liveability of cities. These can be food quality, public transport, healthcare, culture, and even seemingly trivial things such as temperature. There were a total of 140 cities that participated in this survey.
