GLOBAL CONGRESS

 

The WSA Global Congress is dedicated to innovation and the creative use of ICTs. The conference highlights that sustainable development has to be driven by the creative use of quality content. Creativity is neither bound to being rich in terms of material goods, nor to infrastructure or existing networks. It is a “natural resource” of the human mind and it exists everywhere in the world. Bridging the digital divide is therefore also a matter of content.

International and local speakers present the latest trends in digital creativity and the WSA Winners showcase their awarded solutions.
