The European Young Innovators – an initiative in the framework of WSA

From 2020 on, EYA (European Youth Award) becomes part of WSA. The pan European initiative highlighting and encouraging purpose driven digital entrepreneurship will be merged into WSA as WSA European Young Innovators.


WSA is a global contest, community and award series highlighting digital solutions for the UN SDGs. WSA is a truly global community of social entrepreneurs, tech start-ups, government partners, corporates and international organisations, believing in the power of technology.

2 become 1 – WSA and EYA merge to foster social sustainable impact, offer support and wider opportunities for young digital entrepreneurs globally.

Digital technologies are powerful tools to tackle social challenges people face every day.

We can make the world a better place.
