Young people using digital technologies to change the world for the better
Creative e-content & low cost solutions for digital empowerment
Highlights of the winning projects!
| The Egyptian project Yomkem.com tries to bridge the gap between entrepreneurs in informal manufacturing industries and people who have the skills or the means to become a problem solver. |
From France comes a project where computers are built in plastic jerry cans that not only work but actually provide a low cost solution for digital empowerment. “Jerry Do It Together” is a customizable computer inside of a plastic can -made out of end of life materials- that is helping entire communities to get access to the digital world. The Sri Lankan “YES AYV Creative Youth Media Project”, a platform that has trained more than 100 youngsters in digital media creation, is making an impact in the local community with the help of creative digital art.
| These are only three of the 18 winning projects of the WSYA 2013. Three examples of e-content contributing to the pursuit of the UN MDGs through internet and mobile apps; all with the purpose of harnessing the full power of technology. As UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, reminded last April, this is very important nowadays as “these new tools were not available when the Goals were formulated at the turn of the century”. |
