The WSA 2021 is a global initiative that recognises local digital content that contributes to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations.

Nowadays, cities are home to half of the world’s population, and constant urban evolution is imperative. Therefore, municipalities need to respond adequately to the needs and challenges of their population, offering them all the efficient means for a quality lifestyle. The Urban Platform is a single, integrated system capable of collecting up-to-date information and data from multiple sources and displaying it on intuitive, customisable dashboards in real-time. This digital solution from Ubiwhere aims to give decision-makers valuable insight into the progress of their city and the ability to respond effectively and consciously.

Internationally recognised as one of the best digital and smart solutions by the WSA 2021, the Urban Platform focuses on user diversity, implements connectivity and provides a global and sustainable vision of the city. From Portugal to the world, the Urban Platform is an intuitive solution from Ubiwhere designed for better management of municipalities that actively seek to contribute to the well-being of their inhabitants.

Representing Portugal, the Urban Platform by Ubiwhere, as one of the winners of the World Summit Awards 2021, will be present at the WSA Global Congress, an international event held in virtual format from 22 to 24 March 2022.
