On April 8th - 12th, 2019 in Geneva — The World Summit on the Information Society - WSIS Forum 2019, celebrated it’s 10th Anniversary along with co-organizing United Nation agencies ITU, UNESCO, UNDP, UNCTAD, as well as industry representatives and government officials from 193 countries. The Theme of the event was “Information and Communication Technologies for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals”. According to the UN Knowledge Platform for the SDG’s: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
During WSIS, HoryouToken was introduced by Yonathan Parienti, founder and CEO of Horyou.
Horyou is the social network for social good for positive and meaningful interactions among change makers, fostering the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
During the Moderated High-Level Policy Session 8 titled “Inclusiveness — Access to Information and Knowledge for All”, Mr. Parienti, creator of “Blockchain With a Purpose”, spoke about the need to make positive changes now to be able to realize the goals of the UN’s SDG’s by 2030 and that is why he left the world of finance and created Horyou and HoryouToken. He said “Many entrepreneurs, citizens and members of the youth are waiting for that extra push for their projects and social good actions, which can be made through visibility but also funding. This is the reason why we developed a currency for inclusion - a transparent, decentralized way to impact people, leveraging a global community of change makers”.
Mr. Parienti highlighted the role of HoryouToken to support social good actions, information and projects, echoing the UN Sustainable Development Goals. While making it possible for any person to support social good, HoryouToken also provides access to a redistribution service called “Proof of Impact”, a traceable, transparent system that will monetize daily transactions and fund real-world social good projects, people and organizations around the world. He also highlighted the power of social networks like Horyou, which promotes meaningful connectivity amongst its global community, spreading to more than 180 countries. Yonathan said “These citizens are shaping tomorrow's world and sharing initiatives that touch their hearts. They represent culture, art, diversity and advance innovation“.
