Copenhagen is 'world's safest city' for 2021
In this year’s Economist Intelligence Unit's Safe Cities Index (SCI), Copenhagen has come out on top scoring 82.4 points out of 100.
The index ranks 60 international cities based on digital security, health security, infrastructure, personal security as well as the newest addition, environmental security. The newly added environmental category is an important part of the explanation for why Copenhagen has jumped from it’s previous 8th place in 2019. Copenhagen also did especially well in the personal security category.
“Everyone should feel safe in Copenhagen, whether child or senior, male or female, LGBTI+ or part of any other minority. That is why we work continuously to improve safety for our citizens.” explains Copenhagen’s Lord Mayor, Lars Weiss, in the Safe Cities Index report.
