“The WSA Global Congress is a catalyst platform to share learnings. It promotes an attitude of social awareness and how to look at the world, a global mechanism bringing together hidden champions and Nobel prize winners, international unicorns and neighborhood solutions, national governments and global citizens,” WSA chairperson Peter A. Bruck states. “The event aims to recognize and reward those individuals and organizations that work tirelessly for the fulfillment of the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda, which positions Puebla at an international level,” says Olivia Salomón, Secretary of Economy.

“The results obtained in this forum will be an important force for finding creative and viable economic, social and environmental solutions to address the challenges of the 21st century,” says Beatriz Manrique Guevara.

WSA and its aim to learn globally and impact locally The winning solutions 2022 show an impressive variety, from the anonymous online reporting tool Stymie for schools in Australia to an immersive, multisensory experience of Mexican art, from forest monitoring with space observation in Lithuania to the ordering logistics for small retailers in Namibia. Safe You from Armenia creates a virtual safe space for women, whereas Monitor Social from Chile uses the virtual world as a meeting space between citizens and government.

“WSA follows the vision that digital and interactive media based on smart content, combined with the aspiration to high quality in terms of informational value and respect for human rights, are key to meet global challenges and to provide the right solutions – at a time when digital is misused to promote hate and fake news, to conduct cyberwars and online fraud, to individual isolation and social divides,” says WSA chairperson Peter A. Bruck.
