These four will be represented in an annual exhibition at The Tech Museum that has over 130.000 visitors each year. This year, Swedish Solvatten is part of the prestigious exhibition amongst Zipline International, AI4ALL and Amandla Mobi.

These four initiatives have in common that they show that technology can make a big difference in people’s lives.
