The world's best cities to call home revealed: Geneva tops the 'liveability list'.


The list was compiled by scientists from the National University of Singapore, University of California and Curtin University in Australia. Instead of compiling a list of economic powerhouses, they created a measure of 'liveability' in major cities balancing work and social life as well as culture and sustainability. Factors taken into account include economic vibrancy and competitiveness, domestic security and stability, socio-cultural conditions, public governance, environmental friendliness and sustainability.

  1. Geneva
  2. Zurich
  3. Singapore
