The Quality of Life survey, made public today, asked residents in 12 cities to rank their lives in areas including health, crime and safety, and public transport. Wellington came out on top, with just under 95 per cent of Wellingtonians ranking theirs as either extremely good or good, making Wellington the No 1 city. The survey reports Wellingtonians believe it is generally a safe place to live. The city topped the list for people feeling safe after nightfall while in their homes, visiting the city centre, and walking in their neighbourhood.

What is new in 2022?
March was Walk2Work Day share a photo only due to Covid restrictions, we hope to be back in full stride next year for this popular event.
March was also Park(ing) Day and once again Living Streets took over a car park to reflect on 'Covid Space Walk' and all that distance between us due to the pandemic.

Persuasive evidence about the storm and drought impacts of Climate Change, caused partly by rising greenhouse gases from transport, coupled with the obesity epidemic, make this day even more relevant in 2008.
