The 4th WeGO Awards recognized and awarded 18 cities for their initiatives that use ICT to improve the quality of life of citizens.

Prior to the awards ceremony, which will be held at the 5th WeGO General Assembly (Oct 18, 15:00-17:00 GMT+9), WeGO hosted two webinars to highlight the winners and hear the cities speak about their real experiences in implementing the projects.
