Social Good Summit: Building the Global Conversation
September 17, 2012 BY Kate James
Each year the United Nations General Assembly marks an opportunity for global leaders to gather in New York to address and take action against some of the world’s most pressing issues. But for those not attending the conference, it can be difficult to find a meaningful way to participate in U.N. week and offer ideas from our own communities. This is why I’m excited for the foundation to be participating in the Social Good Summit, a global platform that gives anyone, anywhere a seat at the table.
The Summit will bring together social activists, development workers, forward-thinking technologists, young entrepreneurs and the wider public to share ideas on how to tackle global development problems using technology and social media. In partnership with Mashable, the UN Foundation, 92nd Street Y, the UN Development Programme and Ericsson, our goal is to engage the global community to spur innovative thinking on our toughest issues.
