Message from Ms Irina Bokova,
Director-General of UNESCO

MOBILE TECHNOLOGY...
... has helped to create new links among people and it has enhanced opportunities for marginalized groups to participate in social, political and economic life.
It has also facilitated the creation and dissemination of knowledge across borders. For all these reasons, mobile technology is one of our most powerful assets to build inclusive knowledge societies.

For this, we need more than technology.
We must produce and share relevant quality content to create the conditions for a truly inclusive dialogue among all people and cultures. This is why UNESCO is working to harness the power of mobile technology to fulfill the promises of quality education for all, to deepen mutual understanding and to empower people.
The WSA Mobile Congress is a unique opportunity to promote excellence in mobile content, and UNESCO is proud to contribute to this global effort.
