The winning entries of the World Summit Awards are digital solutions that contribute to the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
This year’s competition attracted nominations from 69 UN member states, from Canada to Indonesia, with more than 290 projects submitted; 45 solutions from 29 countries were selected by the international jury.
Skillio.net, a free community learning platform, won the Learning & Education category, while Colibri Charity won the Young Innovators category for making online giving free.
Gábor Kaizer, co-founder of Skillio, said that since the launch of Skillio, they have been on a mission to find a disruptive social media business model to provide a completely free, yet quality professional learning platform for lifelong learning.
As the official conclusion of the current competition series, the WSA Global Congress will take place March 22–24, where the winning teams will present their innovative solutions.
The online event, which is also an awards gala, will feature the two Hungarian winners as well.
