The D4D Prize, which is awarded every two years, rewards initiatives that use digitisation as a lever for development. The selected projects and ideas use the potential of (new) technologies in an innovative way with a view to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations.
The Prize is an initiative of the Royal Museum for Central Africa with the support of the Directorate-General for Development Cooperation and Humanitarian Aid (DGD).
It aims at stimulating the activities of new and existing actors from here and elsewhere in the Digital for Development field, to raise awareness among the general public in Belgium and to structurally integrate the Digitalisation for Development approach into Belgian development cooperation programmes.
The Wehubit partner project Scratc²h 2050 was one of the nominees.
