Value of place - Crain's Detroit Business - Detroit News and Information A city is more than the sum of its buildings, streets and parks. The passion that residents have about where they live is an "X" factor that can be measured and studied over time. Economic planners and policy shapers agree on this: When residents are more engaged in a community, economic investment follows. How to apply that principle is something many cities around the country, like Detroit, are grappling with. "The more attached citizens are to the community -- and attachment comes from things you may not view as economic -- the more folks see and observe each other caring about one another ... the more residents see parks, playgrounds and a beautiful landscape, the more folks see are an inclusive community -- these are not things we are conditioned to see as economic," said Rishi Jaitly, Detroit program director for the Miami, Fla. The Knight Foundation's Soul of the Community study measured just these factors. Detroit is a place with passionate advocates. Melbourne retains the crown of most liveable city Melbourne remains the most liveable location of the 140 cities surveyed, followed by the Austrian capital, Vienna. Vancouver, which was the most liveable city surveyed until 2011 lies in third place. Over the past six months only 13 cities of 140 surveyed have experienced changes in scores, although 28 cities (20% of those surveyed) have seen changes over the past year. In some cases these are positive improvements in liveability driven by infra¬structural development or easing instability. Conflict is responsible for many of the lowest scores. The concept of liveability is simple: it assesses which locations around the world provide the best or the worst living conditions.

Why Do Australia and Canada Have the Most Livable Cities? - Cities Launch Slideshow Last week, the Economist Intelligence Unit released the list of the world's 10 most livable cities in its Global Livability Report. A city's rating "quantifies the challenges that might be presented to an individual's lifestyle" and is based on scores for more than 30 factors within five broad categories: stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education, and infrastructure. Scores for each of the factors are compiled and boiled down to one score between 1 (untolerable) and 100 (ideal). The list, led for the fifth year by 2010 Winter Olympics host Vancouver, is dominated by Canadian and Australian cities. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 8. 10. Sure, Auckland, Helsinki, and Vienna are there, but look at the rest: Why are Canada and Australia home to the most ideal cities? And how important is livability to a resident's happiness anyway?

Détroit en 10 chiffres hallucinants - International Une maison en ruine de Détroit © Reuters 1 : Il fut un temps où Détroit était la quatrième ville des États-Unis. Depuis 60 ans, la ville est peu à peu désertée et s’est vidée de 63 % de sa population pour ne plus compter que 700.000 habitants. 2 : La ville a plus de 100.000 créanciers pour des dettes qui s’élèvent 18.5 milliards de dollars. Ce qui représente 25.000 dollars par habitant. Le plus important créancier est le fonds de pension de la ville qui représente à lui seul 2 milliards de dollars. 3 : Il y a des maisons à vendre pour 500 dollars (380 euros) à Détroit. 4 : Environ un tiers de la surface de la ville (360 km²) est soit vide, soit en état de chancre. 5 : Détroit dénombre près de 78.000 habitations abandonnées. 6 : Des 700.000 habitants, près de la moitié (47 %) est analphabète fonctionnel, soit incapable de comprendre les textes ou instructions écrites qu’il rencontre dans sa vie quotidienne. 7 : 60 % des enfants vivent en dessous du seuil de pauvreté.

The secrets of the world's happiest cities | Society Two bodyguards trotted behind Enrique Peñalosa, their pistols jostling in holsters. There was nothing remarkable about that, given his profession – and his locale. Peñalosa was a politician on yet another campaign, and this was Bogotá, a city with a reputation for kidnapping and assassination. What was unusual was this: Peñalosa didn't climb into the armoured SUV. Instead, he hopped on a mountain bike. A few years earlier, this ride would have been a radical and – in the opinion of many Bogotáns – suicidal act. I first saw the Mayor of Happiness work his rhetorical magic back in the spring of 2006. Peñalosa insisted that, like most cities, Bogotá had been left deeply wounded by the 20th century's dual urban legacy: first, the city had been gradually reoriented around cars. In the third year of his term, Peñalosa challenged Bogotáns to participate in an experiment. Boys in crisp white shirts and matching uniforms poured through a gate. But for a moment I forgot my questions.

On mange mieux aux Pays-Bas qu’en France Les Pays-Bas sont le pays où l’on mange le mieux au monde, devant la France. Selon un rapport de la situation alimentaire établi par Oxfam et basée sur des indicateurs d’abondance, de qualité, de prix et d’hygiène, les vingt premières places de ce classement qui en compte 125 sont occupées par des pays européens, exception faite de la huitième qui revient à l’Australie. La dernière est occupée par le Tchad. Les Pays-Bas ont créé un bon marché qui permet aux gens d’avoir suffisamment à manger. Les prix sont relativement bas et stables, et le type d’alimentation que les gens mangent est équilibré. Pour établir son classement, l’ONG s’est basée sur les dernières données mises à disposition par la FAO), l’OMS et l’OIT.
