WSA Young Innovators Winners 2021

WSA Young Innovators is a special recognition for young social entrepreneurs under 26 years of age, using ICTs to take action on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). Together with the WSA winners of each year, they are honored as outstanding digital innovation with social impact.


The WSA Young Innovators call closed this year with 377 applications from 85 countries. An especially selected youth expert jury evaluated all applications carefully and selected 5 WSA Young Innovators.


From connecting hospitals and patients to emergency services and medium-range cargo drones in Nigeria to creating sustainable transport systems for cyclists in Portugal.


From preventing and predicting outbreaks to ensure water security in Bangladesh, over monitoring coconut diseases and pest infestations with the help of image processing in Sri Lanka, to turning everyday shopping in charitable actions in Hungary - The Young Innovators 2021 use their knowledge to build a world for everyone, so technology not only supports, but impacts lives for the better.


Together with the 40 winners of WSA, the winners of the WSA Young Innovators 2021 will present their solutions and get awarded at the WSA Global Congress 2022, March 22-24, 2022.
