WSA GRAND JURY 2021

Jan 17 - 28, 2022

 

Global challenges like the pandemic, climate change, economic crises and racial exclusion need the involvement of all to take action. New technologies play an essential role to socially organize and create an impact in the communities.

 

Content driven applications which serve to collaborate, to access relevant information, to educate, to provide health solutions and to foster inclusion in society are becoming more and more important.
