Copenhagen named one of the world's most liveable cities by lifestyle magazine
Capital is a role model for international developing cities
For the second year in a row, Copenhagen has been named one of the most liveable cities in the world by the lifestyle magazine Monocle.
Together with New York and Melbourne, Copenhagen is one of the three best planned cities according to Monocle’s annual Quality of Life survey.
And it is testament to the work of Professor Jan Gehl from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Schools of Architecture that all three cities used his expertise when planning their infrastructures.

Copenhagenization has become an international trend, as other cities try to make themselves more accessible for pedestrians and cyclists.
Gehl, who hopes Copenhagenization will inspire developing cities to promote an active city life and thereby reduce air pollution, will be a keynote speaker at the Euroscience Open Forum at Carlsberg City from June 21-26, where he will present ‘Liveable cities for the 21st century: from research to real life’.
