Welcome to the Young Digital Planet

Young People Using ICT to put the UN MDGs into Action!

Join the meet for the world's most important young ICT-Pioneers and their global revolution to reach the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Right here, right now in Montréal at WCIT. Seek out the best young social entrepreneurs, web developers, app designers and data scientists and network with representatives of the business sector, governments, NGOs and media.

Since 2005 the World Summit Youth Award (WSYA) selects and promotes the best applications and websites by young entrepreneurs contributing to take action on the MDGs.

The goals? To fight poverty, hunger, disease, inequality, lack of education and environmental degradation with the use of ICT.

The WSYA 2012 Event 'Young Digital Planet', organized as WCIT youth track, will feature speed meetings, mind minglings, best practice presentations and workshops, while an Award Ceremony will showcase some of the most committed young producers from all UN member states. Get a unique opportunity to gain insight into the 18 winner projects and engage directly with them.

WCIT 2012 and WSYA join Forces to:

  • celebrate the best Young Digital Natives worldwide
  • showcase how youth transforms the future with IT
  • create a space and breakout sessions to prioritize action items following the results of the World Tech Jam
  • organize various Action Workshops
  • enhance youth engagement in using IT to improve world

The WSYA is organized as a follow up activity of the World Summit on Information Society (WSIS) and its action plan towards the year 2015. It is promoted in all UN member states through the networks of the World Summit Youth Award, the UN Global Alliance for ICT, the Internet Society (ISOC), participating UN organizations and agencies, governments and NGOs, youth organizations and all others committed to the motivation of the project.
