Every aspect of the Summit, from speeches to discussions will be broadcast live through internet based platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Google+ Hangouts, so that those not present may still participate and have their voices heard.
The global Social Good Summit, organized by the United Nations Foundation, the United Nation Development Programme, 92Y and Mashables, is a two-day conference examining the impact of technology and new media on social good initiatives around the world.
Held concurrently during the United Nations General Assembly from September 21-22nd, the Social Good Summit unites a dynamic community of global leaders and grassroots activists to discuss solutions for the greatest challenges of our time. The theme, #2030NOW, asks the question, “What type of world do I want to live in by the year 2030?” During the Social Good Summit, global citizens around the world unite to unlock the potential of technology to make the world a better place.
