UN Universal Postal Union recognises what3words with award
We were delighted to receive a recognition award from The Universal Postal Union presented to our Strategy Director, Steven Ramage by Ali Bakheet, Chairman of the UPU at their Headquarters in Bern. The UPUis a specialized agency of the United Nations that coordinates postal policies among member nations, in addition to the worldwide postal system.
As part of the Global Addressing Conference, the UPU organized a competition to inspire new actors to come up with innovative solutions that can tackle the problems caused by a poor addressing system.
Our paper “3 words to stop a situation becoming a crisis” in response to the Preparedness Challenge was judged by an independent panel as one of “the most promising of the addressing solution design challenges.”
It is fantastic to see such an established industry embracing innovative solutions from outside to solve some of the world biggest challenges and to move the industry forward.
