The 1st annual PICSA Index Report was released on November 21st, 2019, shortly after the awards ceremony in Bilbao, Basque Country.
Of the report, PICSA Index co-founder Bruno Lanvin (D&L Partners) said, “With the PICSA index, for the first time, cities were measured not only based on income, but on three pillars that create an overall picture of inclusivity. Through their work on prosperity, social inclusion and spatial inclusion, the cities that ranked on the top of the index have demonstrated world-leading projects and policies that have created inclusive urban centres for all their citizens. On behalf of D&L Partners and the Governments of Bilbao and Biscay, I wish to congratulate the top cities on their outstanding contributions to building a more prosperous and inclusive world”.
The top 3 cities of the 1st annual PICSA Index are (in order): Zurich, Switzerland; Vienna, Austria; and Copenhagen, Denmark.
