The 18 most innovative cities on Earth

Another day, another list of sustainable and livable cities, namely the Financial Post’s “18 most innovative cities on Earth” (via @BrentToderian). Once again, both Vienna and Vancouver made the cut, as the Financial Post praises the cities’ livability, transit system and housing policy (Vienna) as well as greenest city and walking/cycling efforts (Vancouver):

“Vienna, Austria, makes the list for consistently having the highest quality of life in the world, thanks to excellent public transit, renowned museums, more international congresses than any other city, and inventing filtered coffee. It also enjoy some of the finest urban planning, with substandard housing amounting to less than 9% of the city’s total.”

“Vancouver, Canada, has set a mission to become the greenest city in the world by 2020, which has already lead to a 20% decrease in water consumption. Plus, 41% of people walk or bike to get around.”
