ITU Telecom World 2011

ITU Telecom World is 40 years old this year and to celebrate, there are some changes in the style and the format of the event.

Connecting more global citizens will offer considerable commercial and social opportunities. From 24-27 October, thousands of influential private and public sector players will congregate in Geneva to make sure the right frameworks are in place to connect the world.

World 2011 will provide a neutral platform for a global dynamic debate that will encompass a diverse range of global stakeholders.

This debate would not be complete without digital innovators. World 2011 will deliver competitions designed to help organizations like yours to use connected technologies in innovative ways to make the world a better place.

How does it work?
Are you working for a NFP that is attempted to alleviate issues relevant to the UN's Millennium Development Goals:
• alleviating poverty and hunger (including smart agriculture)
• improving education for all
• addressing gender inequality
• access to health care
• environmental sustainability
....or  addressing universal accessibility challenges?

If so, you could benefit from this opportunity.
The competition will run on the new World 2011 web platform, please click here:

We will help you identify a core challenge and write your brief. The brief will be posted online and digital talent will be invited to submit seed responses. We will filter talent and engage you in the selection process. You and your selected developer will attend a training workshop where you will meet and learn from other NFPs and their partner developers. Through a process of pitching and peer feedback, ideas will become prototypes for products that answer your identified need.
