World Summit Youth Award
Young Digital Planet at WCIT2012
Using ICT to fight hunger and poverty, empower women or get education to all – these are the agendas and actions of young people who get involved with the World Summit Youth Award (WSYA) - a contest that promotes best practice in e-Content and helps put the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) into action.
The top winners of the WSYA 2012 edition, selected from over 100 United Nations member states, will be invited to participate to the World Congress on Information Technology (WCIT 2012). Moreover, the winners of the most outstanding projects will have the opportunity to showcase their ideas on how the Internet and mobile communication can change the world during the panel Global Young Innovators: Digital Solutions for Global Challenges of the World Congress on Information Technology (WCIT 2012).
Over the years, the World Summit Youth Award (WSYA) has demonstrated that young people are among the best creative technologists and social entrepreneurs. They have the potential to create exceptional digital contents and help UN member states to reach the MDGs.
