Without a functional address, home delivery is complicated. Think about the times that your delivery has been late or the company has called you several times to ask for directions and the driver went the wrong way despite directions you provided.
Today World Post Day marks 10 years to Agenda 2030 when Addressya wants everyone to have an address!
‘At Addressya we want to make sure that on World Post Day 2030 every phone carrying adult should be able to register a precise, complete and easy to use address, and use it to get access to private and public goods and services, and new opportunities.’
Karoline Beronius, CEO Addressya
Addressya meets Agnes Björn from Plan International and entrepreneur Johan Attby to explore opportunities for supporting reunification of displaced children and families with the use of Addressya addressing app.
Efficient addressing systems are essential to reach the targets of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Addressya (previously Map Project) contributes to at least six of the 17 goals.
We always develop with the integrity of the individual users at the centre. We have designed our system so that our users know exactly what personal information is collected and are in charge of using and sharing it.
Somehow it always worked out, we always got there in the end, but sometimes a short distance could delay us several hours. Yet it worked. So I never questioned it much: when in Rome do as the Romans do!
