  • The people’s choice award is selected through community voting. The venture with the most votes wins the People’s Choice Award. This category will win an all-expense paid trip to the summit in Kiev, Ukraine.

The SIA Summit 2019 is a gathering of 130+ young social innovators from 20+ countries in Europe, Africa and Asia taking place in the Ukranian capital Kiev from November 26th to 30th.

Beyond that, the SIA Summit also serves as the ultimate meeting point of leading international and national organizations working at the frontier of social entrepreneurship and youth empowerment to tackle the most pressing challenge of the times.
