SINGAPORE IS HOSTING THE UN-BASED WORLD SUMMIT AWARD SOCIAL INNOVATION CONGRESS, SINGAPORE, JUNE 29- JULY 1, 2016
 Digital technologies are one of the main drivers for the United Nations agenda towards the Sustainable Development Goals. The World Summit Award Congress Singapore 2016 presents the global top 40 of digital innovations creating sustainable social change and impact world-wide in the framework of an international conference in Singapore. Bringing together young social entrepreneurs and innovators with international thought-leaders, ICT experts and regional stakeholders promises a true knowledge transfer on how social innovation and entrepreneurship can be encouraged and play a key role to have a sustainable impact on society.

The World Summit Award Social Innovation Congress Singapore 2016 is organized in cooperation with the Creative Alliance Group and EP-SI Social Venture Fund. The main focus lies on digital innovation creating sustainable impact world-wide. The 40 WSA Winners 2015, the best regional applications from South-East-Asia and young social entrepreneurs and innovators, will make Singapore a hub for social innovation and entrepreneurship. The agenda also offers a vast array of international and local speakers sharing their insight how local relevant content can lead to system transformation and how technology will change our society in the future.

Guest of honor H.E. Ahmad Alhendawi, United Nations Secretary-General’s Envoy on Youth states on his participation at the upcoming WSA Social Innovation Congress:

“Young people are powerful drivers of change in political, economic and social developments around the world […] using the power of ICTs and social media, young people have a vehicle like never before to engage and participate. […]We must continue to recognise the valuable contributions of young entrepreneurs and work together to ensure the success of the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.”

The 3 days program revolves around rocking the audiences mind sets and inspiring entrepreneurship and innovation with a real impact on society. Highlights are the motivational Ten Meters of Thinking by Paul Hughes, creating knowledge by drawing live as he tells stories along ten meters of paper exploring leadership, innovation and transformation. Red Bull Amaphiko shares insights on Creative Storytelling. Adam Montandon brings his Factory of Imagination from Denmark, and will turn around all your pre-conceptions on thinking. Interwoven with the intensive agenda, WSA offers also a unique outlay of networking opportunities, concluding in the festive Winners Gala ceremony on July 1.

WSA Chairman Prof. Peter A. Bruck ensures: “High quality interactive and local relevant content guarantees that people stay smarter than technology. Singapore will offer the special stage to highlight the swing of modern mobile technologies serving to develop local communities, national social strategies and meaningful use of mobile technology.

All over, the WSA Social Innovation Congress ensures an excellent selection of meaningful and relevant innovation in ICT and promises a vibrant program of high level speakers and workshop leaders with solid networking opportunities on a global level.
