Live Smart in Lisbon, Europe’s Smartest City
Lisbon has long been a hub for Europe’s tech scene, with its outstanding international connectivity, abundant conference venues and affordability making it the ideal place to host tech sector events. Now, it’s not just for events that the global community of bright young things are flocking to Lisbon – they’re coming to stay.
For workers who aren’t tied to the office, relocating to Lisbon makes a lot of sense. The city itself is stunning, with lush parks, a beautiful urban waterfront and an impressive range of shops, restaurants and leisure facilities.
Lisbon also ticks all the right boxes when it comes to living sustainably, having scooped the European Green Capital Award for 2020. The city was hailed as a role model in the way it has demonstrated how sustainability and economic growth can go hand-in-hand. It reduced CO2 emissions by 50 percent between 2002 and 2014, and energy consumption by 23 percent and water consumption by 17 percent between 2007 and 2013.
