Here’s something for us all to be proud of. The UK has just been ranked 7th overall in the Good Country Index which measures Science & Technology, Culture, International Peace and Security, World Order, Planet and Climate, Prosperity and finally, health and Wellbeing.
The index measured 125 countries so coming 7th is very good, however one area where the UK came out on top is in Science and Technology with a 1st place accolade in one of the most important parts of human progress.
The Good Country Index is there to measure what each country on earth contributes to the common good of humanity, and what it takes away. Using a wide range of data from the U.N. and other international organisations, they have given each country a balance-sheet to show at a glance whether it’s a net creditor to mankind, a burden on the planet, or something in between.
