WSA European Young Innovators 2021 focus on tackling the UN SDGs:
The challenges of the global pandemic have caused Europe to rethink its ways and structures. Especially digital content has proven to be an essential problem solver, providing solutions for remote working, online learning, and health. With the regional initiative of the European Young Innovators, WSA connects and highlights purpose driven digital entrepreneurship across Europe.
“The WSA European Young Innovators initiative combines two major perspectives - first the commitment on the UN SDGs through Europe’s Youth and the positive shaping of the future of Europe. The UN SDGs must be our measurement – in terms of what to look at and where to look. Today we are living in a completely different environment – the global pandemic has shows more than ever how much digital means can be essential and beneficial for progress and positive impact. Hence, it is more important than ever to promote qualitative, local content. This year’s European Young Innovators present a wonderful showcase of purpose driven innovation and entrepreneurship.“ WSA Chairman Peter A. Bruck states.
