We were very proud to be the lead writer on the submission that earned Winnipeg a spot among the top 7 most intelligent communities in the world for 2018.
We were engaged by Economic Development Winnipeg to write much of the document, which included featuring major ‘smart’ projects taking place in the private and public sector here. Good writing is no accident. It takes work. We approached the submission as though it were a magazine, with feature stories that showcased the people behind the projects as well as our colourful city.
The next step is for judges to visit Winnipeg. We’ve made it to this stage a few times before. I think we have a strong chance of being named number one this year.
The top 7 this year are:
- Chiayi City, Taiwan
- Espoo, Finland
- Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
- Ipswich, Queensland, Australia
- Tainan City, Taiwan
- Taoyuan, Taiwan
- Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
