    Live in Utrecht, Netherlands

    In this city there’s an experiment to find out what it’s citizens will do when given £750 per month. Will they spend it on something productive; something useless or work more to earn even more money?

    Alaska, USA

    The low temperatures and tough conditions mean there are less and less people living in Alaska. This is why the government has decided to offer £1900 per month for anyone who dares to live here for over 6 months and doesn’t have a criminal record.

    Niagara Falls

    Although it may seem to most, just a tourist attraction, Niagara Falls also has an upcoming city. They’re now offering graduates living here up to £5000 to later stay working in a company in the city. How amazing could it be to live in Niagara Falls? This is your chance!

    Detroit, USA

    As well as being a city full of hidden treasures, Detroit has been abandoned after the economic crisis. Therefore the government wants to improve the city and population offering up to £15,000 for anyone who moves here and starts working. And this isn’t the only program they’re put in place to help the population.

    Saskatchewan, Canada

    Have you finished studying and now you’re not sure what to do? Saskatchewan in Canada has an alternative; this amazing province offers up to £11,000 for anyone living and working here for up to 7 years.


    Kansas, USA

    Some cities in the Kansas state have lost a lot of citizens in the recent years so they are now offering land to those who decide to live here for a long period of time.

    Tristan de Cunha, south Africa

    This small island in South Africa is actually part of British territory. It’s very difficult to access so it’s great for anyone who wants to get away from the rest of the world. In fact it was named by Guinness world records as the most remote inhabited island in the world. Despite this, they want the population and the economic activity of the area to increase. So if you come and work here there are many personal benefits offered. (They’re mainly looking for farmers). The best part? There are plenty of penguins!

    So, out of this list would you rather live in Canada, travel to Kansas or become a farmer in South Africa? If you’re looking for a new adventure, why not!
