Help us celebrate 🎉 #WebChampions building the world we want
Since Covid-19 was declared a pandemic a year ago, the web has allowed us to reimagine our lives. Now, our opportunity to build a better future depends on a web that is infused with everyone’s talent, energy and ideas — particularly young people who are so often leaders of change.
On the web’s 32nd birthday, we’re celebrating #WebChampions who are using digital technology to tackle gender inequality, curb Covid-19, protect the environment and address other global challenges | Meet our #WebChampions
“These young leaders see the web as a tool to fight for justice, expand opportunities, and find solutions to pressing problems. In the hands of this generation, the web can help to overcome some of humanity’s great challenges.”
Web inventor Sir Tim Berners-Lee & Web Foundation Co-founder Rosemary Leith
