From SMS messages that keep you up to date with crop prices to mobile monitoring of your health data; from digital libraries and mobile education apps to AI-powered transportation systems; digital technologies including information and communication technologies (ICTs) are helping to speed progress towards a more sustainable world.
How do YOU see ICTs helping make the world a better place?
We want to see from your perspective how ICTs are helping to make the world more inclusive, sustainable and livable.
#ICT4SDG is a global campaign to raise awareness of the important role of ICTs in meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and we want you to take part.
The United Nations has focused on 17 global goals to transform our world – and achieving them will require the use of all available digital technologies. The SDGs and related targets will stimulate action over the next fifteen years in areas of critical importance for humanity and the planet.
WSIS Forum launches #ICT4SDG Photo Contest 2017
The World Summit on Information Society (WSIS) Forum is launching its first-ever photo contest – asking YOU to picture a more sustainable world.
Photos should capture how ICTs are playing an enabling role in achieving the SDGs.
Send your photos of projects, people, and organizations that are using ICTs to make a difference. The contest runs from 2 March to 2 May 2017.

The three winning entries in the WSIS Forum Photo Contest 2017 will be invited to participate in ITU’s #ICT4SDG campaign, which highlights the many ways ICTs are contributing in addressing all the SDGs. A dedicated poster and other campaign materials highlighting their work will be created and shared within ITU and its stakeholders and the winner will have full use of all the materials created.
