Rep. Peters Raises Profile of San Diego as World-Renowned ‘Smart City’ in Washington D.C.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Scott Peters (CA-52) was the featured speaker at the Washington, D.C. premiere of National Geographic’s "World's Smart Cities: San Diego," a one-hour documentary special focused on uncovering what makes San Diego one of the most innovative, forward-thinking cities across the globe. San Diego is one of only four cities in the world, and the only U.S. city on National Geographic’s list.

“San Diego has a lot that it can teach the rest of the country, and the world, about how we are leading the way as a smart city through collaboration, innovation, and brain power,” Rep Peters stated. “Since my first day in Congress I have made it a priority to spread the collaborative approach that has made our region a center of world-class scientific research, and home to workers at the forefront of discovery. It is encouraging to see that work built upon with the release of National Geographic’s ‘World's Smart Cities: San Diego’ documentary.”
