What's the smartest city in New Zealand?
Per head, Wellington has the most tertiary qualified people, but neither Wellington nor Auckland is the New Zealand city named as semi-finalist in the world's most intelligent communities.
That honour has gone to Whanganui.
The competition is run by a foundation called the Intelligent Communities Forum.
Riverside, California currently holds the title of intelligent community of the year. Whanganui is vying for the title along with 20 other cities around the planet.
And as Whena Owen found out, Whanganui is loving it.
