The ITU Telecom World Young Innovators Competition

The ITU Telecom World Young Innovators Competition in partnership with the World Health Organization (WHO) is looking for innovative ideas on how information and communication technologies (ICTs) can help smart cities to slow down or mitigate the effects of climate change.

It may focus on monitoring of or reporting on climate change, mitigating or adapting the impact of climate change on society, or on changes in technology and society that lead to a greener community.

This competition is open to all young people who are 18-30 years old and are coming from all 193  ITU’s member states.

The best initial ideas will be presented at the WHO Conference on Health and Climate Change on August 27 – 29, 2015.  At the end of the competition, two winners will join ITU Telecom World 2014 in Doha, Qatar, from December 7-10 to pitch their ideas in front of industry leaders and national governments, participate in workshops, benefit from a year of ongoing mentorship, and win  up to $5 000 in seed funding.
