Copenhagen has yet again come top of another survey – this time for being Europe’s ‘smartest city’.
It’s been awarded the title, for the second year in a row, by ‘Fastcoexist’, a New York-based group that appears to be a melting pot for ideas – and concerned about climate change.
Denmark’s capital has won the title partly because of its green credentials. As well as named ‘European Green Capital 2014’, it’s also working hard to hit its target of being carbon neutral by 2025. (Perhaps that’s why our heating bill for just three months came in at more than £600 – ouch!)
I’ve already written about Copenhagen’s impressive cycling ‘super highways’ (see here), but the wide use of bikes also helped the city to the number one spot.
For those interested, Amsterdam came second and London seventh. You can read more here.
