Medellín is among the 25 most innovative cities in the world

Next to capitals like Toronto, Hong Kong and New York, Medellín was nominated as one of the world’s 25 most innovative cities of the year. The announcement was made by the Urban Land Institute, a non-profit organization founded in 1936 that seeks to promote ideas, experiences and projects that improve quality of life.

Medellín was chosen from among 200 cities. The Metro which reduces CO2 emissions by 175,000 tons a year, the escalators in Comuna 13,  a significant reduction in homicides and the construction of library parks all over the city are just some of the factors that influenced Institute’s decision.

The Washington D.C.-based organization makes nominations based on sustainability, comprehensive mobility plans, management of renewable energy sources. Medellín and Sao Paulo were the only two Latin American cities on the list. People can vote daily thru October 5th at:  http://online.wsj.com/ad/cityoftheyear. The top three cities will be announced on October 19th.
